Triangle and Cylinder, egg tempera on parchment, 4 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches.
Sometimes I think that certain painting have impish qualities, deliberately trying to trip you up just when you thought everything was going so well. This was one of those; the first day's work went so well that I thought I had only another hour or so to finish it the next day. Well, two days and 7 or 8 working hours later, including wiping off the cylinder down to the parchment––twice!––it is done. It's a fairly dramatic image with saturated color, light and dark, flat and round, the geometry fixed by the small dark "eye" under the triangle's peak.
