Painted these some time ago- would call them 'studies'. Do mostly figurative stuff. Largish, in the 6' by 5' vicinity. I like Freud and Fischl and more recently Samantha French who's pics of swimmers at the TNC Gallery in NYC right now.
I start with a charcoal sketch and then develop the form and contour from there, building depth very gradually.
this one is a play on the Michelangelo sculptures in the tomb of Juliano de MediciEdited by Pliny - 9/17/11 at 5:01am
