I terminated, if one can say that a painting is ever terminated, the first 4 columns of this project. Each column represents 5 paintings of 60 on 90 cm. So the total height is 3 meters and width is 3.6 meters. Here follows the full view.
The paintings are stitched together in the Gimp, This picture was not taken in one shot because my painting place is not big enough to position all the panels together while leaving me the distance to shoot the whole damn thing. This explains the 'dark-bottom and light-top' differences between panels. Altogether the real whole thing has a better flow than on this picture but I had to pay a price to share this work with my readers.
As the picture, given here, clearly attests I'm already at work expanding this mural on the right side... I'm indeed transitioning to a second chapter of the narrative on the right.
The transition starts in panel 4 and 5 (top) of the 4th column on the right and will fully occupy columns 5 and 6 and 7. Starting with column 8 I'll initiate the 2nd chapter... which will take 4 to 6 columns depending on what discoveries I make along the way...
As you can see from the individual panels each stands on its own as an individual painting. It takes an awful lot of time to balance the colors because it is applied in 2 different "contexts":

I shall restart my normal blogging on Friday January 8th.
In the meantime I wish you all a happy Christmas and New Year.
