50 figures, #5 again

I couldn't resist playing around with #5 a little more, all those little creepy lines to bring out. This is a case of should've-left-it-alone, but that's okay. I like this self-imposed exercise of painting 50 figures because it gives me the opportuntiy to experiment without becoming so attached to what I'm doing. I grab an idea, work on it and move on to the next idea--no fretting allowed, just happily creating. What I do like about this painting is that when I hold it vertically I see a terrestrial being of sorts, and when I turned the painting horizontally I see the figure flowing along in moving water. Doesn't make it good, just a little interesting.
