I started Passing tonight. I decided to show more of the street behind the figures in this work in comparison to A Long Week. I may opt to use the same approach when returning to work on A Long Week, but I'm not sure. Speaking of a long week I think this is going to be one.
With Passing I'm maintaining the earth tone pallet. It seems to really work for this body of work. There's a common mood within these works. There's almost a Edward Hopper isolated feeling within them. The figures are lonely while surrounded by others. I'm just going to go with the flow and let the work enlighten me. I feel my work tells me about myself or at least about what's going on within me on a subconscious level. In this case it might just purely be an observation of how people are in a large urban environment. Large cities tend to turn us into just another face in the crowd.
