On the easel today…

untitled

Today 4/29/16 On The Easel features my newest painting. Inspired by my love of figurative art and the female form, this piece explores the anatomy of the voluptuous, athletic female figure. I intended to create a mystical dreamlike effect that enveloped the form and add a unique sense of emphasis on the figure in the composition. I intend to incorporate the use of delicacy in the background as I create the mystical surroundings, but at the same time use the power of strong skin colors that highlight the muscle structure and form of the figure. Creating subtle details in the background i want to allow the colors’ layers to create depth in the piece, which will pull the viewer into the piece beyond the figure.

Upon completion, this piece along with two other figurative paintings I created will be apart of an exhibition at the Garrett Museum of Art in Garrett Indiana.

  1. The pose of the well toned heavy- thighed voluptuous woman is compelling visually. The senses are aroused as the subtle use of colour fleshes out both the subject and the background. Well done and Good Luck

    • Thank you Jacqueline for that critique. Im glad that you highlighted the appeal that the colors had on your senses. They work well in the composition.
