Day 4 Interrogating the real

Today was rather frustrating, Using a canvas board I had created in the workshop I started to paint, using a blurry green filtered photo, from the collection I had made, as the subject. However before Painting the green figures I wanted a completely matte background to work off, I wanted no brush strokes or shine, which was quite difficult to achieve. In the end I experimented with painting onto various surfaces to find what was best at achieving the matte effect I desired. Over the weekend I rework a large canvas I already have use as experimentation for Monday( and to see if working onto green is more appropriate for the painting.)
