|Untitled - Painting in progress, 24x27"|
So, anyways. This painting. Weird and odd - yes, I 100% agree. But also an excellent experience, experiment and totally painting out of my norm - 100% refreshing and new, and totally exciting. The main idea of the lesson last week - make a background, find faces in the background, and just go from there. We were given the artists, Picasso, Chagall and Basquiat for inspiration. I feel that I pulled the most from Basquiat - loved his work! Here are some of my progress shots:
And...before people start jumping to conclusions...the image of a baby does not mean that we are having a baby, or anything like that LOL. That is what a lot of people thought when I showed them. As I mentioned above, imagery in paintings can mean oodles of things, and I cannot personally tell you what this means, as I'm just not sure myself. I saw what I saw in the background, pulled it out, and yes it's crazy-odd for my usually painting style. But I am loving it.
