3rd week of adding work to the blog and this is the 1st of the Guardian images. The painting shows a young woman with a man’s arm around her neck. His other hand holds a long sharp knife. His face is hinted at in the top left-hand corner. My painting has cropped a 3rd figure, a policeman who was wrestling with the man. I’ve not really caught the tension and terror in the woman’s face but as a painting composition I really like some of the angles and the simplicity of colour.
