We are starting painting number 3 and 4 in my figure painting class. By tomorrow I have to have 6 sketches prepared for 2 paintings we will be working on at the same time. I really love the idea of having one of my characters in the painting, or both, but represented realistically and three-dimensionally. I also want to work with the idea of these characters being in the back of the mind of the people in the painting- he is there but they are ignoring him. I think he could represent a lot, depending on what else is going on in the painting.
one of the sketches got completely muddied up in my scanner- sorry.
