I wanted to learn how to paint the human body, especially female. In my memories were still hidden visions, of Da Vinci's paintings, with naked women. In secrecy I saw this wonderful book in my Uncle's home as a boy. But more about it, I will tell some other time. For me, it appeared necessary to solve the problem of how I should paint my fantasies and dreams of women during my long voyages on ships far from land. It appeared to me that the only way to do it is to use the language of surrealism. I wasn't sure how to do this.........is my knowledge and ability to use paints and brushes enough to achieve that goal? And above all, do I have the courage to show these paintings? The canvas for this painting was prepared a little differently than previous ones. First, the linen canvas was covered with a layer of carpenter's glue. After, drying was sanded and covered with a few layers of white acrylic paint. At that time, Poland started production of grate scale titanium white paint. It was an excellent acrylic paint and above all, there were no problems getting it. After thirty something years the canvas was in excellent conditions.
