Detail from Panel 1

The figure is taken from one of several 20 second sketches of my girlfriend. She was using yoga stances. While I do not want my work to be about yoga stances, this is more about her. Which I feel makes the work more personal. It is the type of stance I was looking for to depicft something elegant.
The smoke as well as the land, symbolizes something chaotic, such as a bombing. I am happy with this part of the painting. I feel it could stand alone as one piece.
A gritty foreground, with a devastated but natural background Adds to overall uncertainty of the atmosphere.
I plan to sharpen up the smoke stacks with hightlights and outline.
