This image is after Balthus. Dimensions of total piece: 85" x 69.5". This is a piece in its interesting state prior to resolution, that was made as a tryout for a particular process. The source image was a painting reproduction from a Balthus monograph. I worked 'blind' to the whole composition by transcribing four panel quarter sections independent of the others, and then pieced all four together. The whole thing is much larger than life, so I was able to enjoy a number of the parts within each panel, as my intention was to work out the way it all fit together later on.
