Poet’s Narcissus is known colloquially as Peasant’s eye… As I am in the heat of birthing this poison, I’ve been gazing into that eye waiting… It’s been 2 days. After sketching, researching, dreaming, and dithering, I finally landed on the style for this piece: extreme close up with the primary focal point being the 3 centrally located ovaries — personified as ‘weeping Buddha” style male figures.
I’m working out how to handle the underpainting now (part watercolor crayon and part soft bodied acrylic… TBA) I think I’ll work the petals in whites-grays-lavendar (to show shading) and maybe do some painting on the threads after stitching.
This one’s really coming together!
