God of Rage

Another Gouache Painting
So this theme is so much fun I may do a few of them. I do have a bunch of these little 5x5 claybords. The last painting was supposed to be a sort of "God of Despair", depicting a melancholic stone face: overgrown with vines, weathered, and forgotten. In contrast, this one is a stone face depicting rage or hate: a stone face illuminated by a swirling banner of flames. I figured it would be fun to break the ideas into two visual elements: the stone face, and some kind of analog element to parallel the theme. I say it's not a bad way to get into a style of painting mostly new to me.
