Thesis painting

Here's the first in a series of final paintings for my thesis project, based on the show Fuerzabruta.
Like the show, my images will be ambiguous. Taken together, themes such as isolation and connection will be explored. I have a specific narrative in mind running through the series, but the viewer's interpretation may change the story they take away from the paintings. I've struggled with technique and am relieved to finally hit on a direction I'm happy with.
Update: I've redone this image.
Here's the same image cropped wider. I haven't decided which I will go with.
