Femme de feu I final ... First timid steps towards a new pictorial language!

 I finished this one yesterday with a few of "hit or miss" passes, trying to achieve an acceptable balance in my view...

To accomplish what I want to accomplish with this new technique incorporating calligraphic mark making, I need to lay the artwork flat on the floor at least at the initial stage. In this case, I proceeded as usual on my easel, hence the extensive vertical dripping which I tried to leverage by hook or crook in the final design.

Note to self: "I'm getting bored with pure realism... and would like to introduce some chaos in the natural order of things!"
