First to yesterday's drawing: It went through a lot of changes during its two hours of process. The man's head was made first, and it remained as part of the drawing for ever so long. But it did not work. As in the drawing I posted yesterday, this man's head seemed to be on backwards, so I altered it. It changed from looking forward, toward the viewer, to sideways, away from the woman. That was not the lone, late change. Today's title refers to the removal of his male parts. They, like the head, were not appropriate to this drawing. Sorry, Michelangelo.
Big changes occurred in the painting too! Untitled Triptych-08·13·2014 took on a new shadow in the right panel, also smaller heads for the man and the woman in the left and right panels. The heads, obviously, are unfinished. I will work on them today. Most exciting to me is the increase in visual animation created by yesterday's changes. This thing is coming along in its 29th state! Oh, the drapery in the central panel also changed.
