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, a painting of a toad by another artist, 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 works in this series, close to Mark's improvised piano music in method of execution.
