This was an idea I had for a long time that came from a dream I had. The manner I painted it has a bit of influence from Cubism, although, it’s far from it. I recently got interested in Cubism but at the time of the painting I didn’t know much about the principles of cubism. I did find a book later called Cubism by Edward F. Fry that gave me a better understanding of what Picasso, Braque and the other Cubists were trying to achieve.
I’m pretty happy with how this painting turned out and will try a few more paintings in this manner.
Below is one of the early sketches I did for the painting.
