At the Peter Doig exhibit at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Montreal, the curator chose to show the "backstage" stuff! It is an important part of the art, I think.
The subject was first photographed.
Sketches were done of different aspects of the photo.
In his final rendition, Doig decided not to show what was behind the wall-the biggest cemetery in Port of Spain.

I am at the 3/4 mark in the development of a piece that will be exhibited in Geneva, Switzerland, in June. I think I still have some more undoing to do before it gets done to my liking.
