Peter Doig

I am currently obsessed with this painting by Peter Doig. It has been projected on my mind for the last week, especially before I sleep. A healthy obsession at least! I think it is because I've been thinking a lot about the application of paint recently and love the thin washes. I also love the double image of the wings. Doig said his studio was leaking at the time and he let the rain water pour onto the canvas. I prefer to imagine this as an insect rather than 'Batman' though!
