Snake Seller – Development

I have reflected on the slow process of the development and refinement of this piece.  Subsequently, I have made a decision to darken the overall image through the use of glazes and tonal overlays.  This has increased the element of drama and reinforced tiredness of the painting.  The colour scheme has become richer and more vibrant.  The intention is to echo the gloominess and monotony of daily rituals of waiting and the suspended entrapment in this cycle.  Nothing will ever change.  There is no escape.  The best result is to survive until tomorrow.

I will gradually, through careful highlighting, bring a spark of colour and light into this image.  I would like to reveal some very important details and, therefore, enhance the narrative content of this piece.

In response to my previous ethical considerations, the main character on this piece is totally anonymous.
