New canvas, new ideas, and more experimenting.
It must be my schooling as an engraver that will not allow me to paint without some sort of an idea what the finished work will look like. So I guess for now abstract is not part of my palette. Here is a new effort in progress, along with the preliminary sketch; the Idea is to make a stained glass window effect.
50x70 cm oil on canvas. Comments and criticisms welcome

this fits perfectly in this Forum!

and is very delicate and strong.

I might suggest the diagonal rectangles be made smaller at the bottom,
they seem too large and blocky in proportion to he figure

Thank you for the advise, which I have taken. and encouragement, which is appreciated. This painting will take a bit of time to complete.

I think you're going in a very interesting direction here. I love the deep colors and the feeling of stained glass/ tiles. The figure is well done, also.

I think you should do another one just doing the floor - I see so many people in it.
