diptych

"The Fight" by Michele Del Campo

This is how it looks like my big diptych, called "La pelea" ("The Fight"). It's part of my new exhibiting project "Viaje de no retorno" ("Journey of no Return") and now that I know the opening date I can also officially announce my 2011 solo exhibition: it will open in Lima (Peru) on 3rd November at the Galería Enlace Arte Contemporaneo and will end on 2nd December.

Work in progress... by Michele Del Campo

I'm enjoying painting this diptych, this is the stage when everything comes together and, with the image mostly defined, it's so pleasurable to build it all up with brushes on the canvas. Some of the figures are not recognizable anymore if compared with the reference pictures, I am adapting them to a more "rough" type of young people (I will show the original pictures after I finish it...)

The painting is flowing now very easily on the canvas and every day I see it growing fast. It's a real pleasure when painting comes so easy and spontaneous on a big surface.
