About this painting
The first painting in a series of three which uses improvised music as an inspiration, using direct painting without pre-planning to capture the feelings of the moment.

A theme was chosen, the image of a toad, and the colours and textures of the creature were repeated throughout the work, with additional material from a Antigone in front of the dead Polynices by Nikiforos Lytras.

Repetition and movement, while sticking to some fundamental themes to form a structure, makes this and the other paintings in this series similar in execution to the way I improvise piano music when playing.
