Fallen Angel

The superimposition of this 2007 nude study on a partially effaced earlier drawing, (or drawings), gives the impression of a slight, winged creature at rest in front of a domed classical-looking building with another ghostly figure emerging in between. Memory doesn't serve.... but on finding it again I am rather drawn to the vulnerable, hunched, sleeping figure and its flame-coloured background elements.

I love looking through older works, sometimes I wonder what was I thinking but, most times it's a pleasant surprise. This one is an interesting piece. It reminds me of something, another painting, can't think of it right now.The face or the way the body is positioned maybe.
