Group Tutorial

Following my ideas and photographs of the window sill I began to create a painting , and also had a group tutorial with a few other students and tutor James , we discussed my work and I was given a few artists to look at.

Above is my painting, I’ve used acrylic and charcoal. I like the high contrast in my painting it gives it a sinister look but it still needs work added. The artists I was given are-
Edward hopper is one of my favourite artists, I love the contrast and the difference between the outside and the inside in the painting below.

Edward Hopper – Night Windows

I also looked at George tooker, artist who creates disturbing paintings of inside and outside , I like his crazy scary faces and his smooth tones in his paintings, below is some of his work.

Finally I’ve been looking at Henri Rousseau, his jungle scenes are dark and naive like, his paintins strive in colour and imagination. I love the smiles the monkeys have on their faces and the leafage included around the painting with dark and light tones almost cartoon like.
