Quick Nude Painting

This was painted in fifteen minutes a while back, one of the first time I have used paint in a life model session.

Human Photography (continued)

I wanted to point towards the works mystery and its ambiguity. To do this I decided to go back to the root of the work, create a couple of photographs using an actual human body as the subject matter for my abstractions, using close shots and avoiding points of reference on the body or skin.

Experiment with Colour

Made this for the last brief on reflection, it is based around the theme of refraction, an area that I explored before choosing reflection as my idea. The woman is behind a clear glass which has altered the part of her face that is covered by it (If that is not clear).

Finished final piece

I haven’t managed to fully realise my intentions with this project because of the space limitations, so if you can imagine these three paintings side by side with string linking them, and a large map of Britain in the background that would be good 🙂 . I decided to document a journey I undertook by the faces I saw along the way, with each portrait in the series getting more and more rushed , to represent my patience waning throughout the journey, the paintings are linked by thread to show that they were in sequence and were thought about throughout the day. I think that is was reasonably successful considering that I didn’t have the resources to put all my ideas into the project.

Maquette

For this week’s assessed piece we were asked to make a maquette illustrating our intentions. Now although maquettes are usually scale models of a larger final piece of work, I decided to bend the rule slightly and make a maquette out of a novel, thinking that this would serve as a good metaphor for a journey, and would give me a good material to paint on.
As the photographs show, I have painted an ‘A’ on the front page and a ‘B’ on the back page to make the idea of a journey very clear to the viewer. Between these letters there is a solid black line that travels all the way through the book, only interrupted near the middle, where I have painted a quick portrait of a woman, showing my intentions to document a journey by the faces that I see along the way.
