New painting: Secret

Secret, Acrylics and oilpaint on woodpanel, 30 x 40 cm.
I while ago I made some sketches for a serie of paintings with a feminine touch and a lot of organic shapes with a main focus on the face. I wanted to paint these on woodpanels because it's more sustainable and heavier than paper. This woodpanel has a thickness of 5 mm, which fits perfectly in the frame.

When I changed the eyelashes into red, I liked her face more, because it just gives it a twist.

I build the painting in layers of black and white, so everything had the same values. Except the jellyfish. This is something new for me, because normally I would through lots of colours in at the first fase.  But now everything is subtle.
