Figurative Painting: Two Shrouded Figures

This weekend I have been mainly finishing off other paintings and doing promo stuff. This afternoon I had the urge to attempt a figurative painting. This is an area I have not done much before, I stick to mainly, abstract, sculpture and of course landscapes.

In a very spontaneous and quick session I produced this painting. I put the paint on the board with brush and palette knife almost without thinking and certainly without planning. This one scared me a little, after painting it I felt an overwhelming emotional release.

This evening I have been staring at it and the more I stare at the the more I see, there are more than two figures lurking in this painting!

What do you think?
What's your reaction to the painting?

Derwent Gallery - Five Paintings

A couple of weeks ago I visited Derwent Gallery (they sold a couple of my paintings in January). Robin the owner chose five of the paintings for his gallery. He has also made them available online thought you all might like to see them. I'm quite excited to see them online, through a real-world gallery!
