Climbing



Just trying to get this out of my system-- and follow the advice again of not caring so much about the final result but just paint and see what happens.

Great stuff Charlie. This looks like it was fun to make. That bloody tie is an interesting element. Overall, really interesting look. Keep on keeping on!

That's too close to a self portrait for me not to be completely creeped out.

Thanks for comments everyone-- great to hear from all of you. To answer your question Leslie and Paul, it is a self-portrait (kind of) but originally going to be just an experiment in using oil washes. Anyway, it eventually became this...

Is it possible to illustrate "Climbing" without showing someone actually "Climbing?" I think you just did... and did very well.
Climbing the corporate latter makes you... a little less human. More of a monster for back-stabbing and laying-off your way to the top.
