Crouching figure 2-12-20
I admired artist Egon Schiele a lot and selected a number of his sketches/works on paper and developed in oil. I’ve maintained to keep the poses/composition as close as possible to Schiele’s original sketches but tried to render the figures less doll-like or angular and made the colour more vibrant.
This painting used a muted palette contrasting with areas of vibrant colour. The work is painted with a fluid application of paint, expressive marks and stripping back allowing earlier layers to be visible. Giving them an ‘imperfect’ feel, which in turn simultaneously gives the work an exciting vitality and delicacy.
