Yoga pose VIII - step I... the usual textural mess!

Committed to some form of textures, I went at it with both the palette knife and the brush in an attempt to create a slightly different ground....

... to see what will happen with subsequent layers! Midstream, I decided to leave more breathing space in this composition to accentuate the elevation of the body and avoid a "boxed in" look , a painful decision that had a domino effect on my design!

Note to self: "Entering the realm of impasto painting with the brush... sooner or later, I'll run out of experiments to do... at least the ones that relate to paint manipulation and application! More and more, it's gonna be paint for the sake of paint, the subject will become secondary!"
