Recently, I decided that I would create some more time- lapses, which would help me to be critical of my painting and drawing technique. I have recently been looking at a variety of different Artists, who are bold and more importantly, confident with their brush stroke, which I personally like. Below is a time- lapse I have created after having a discussion with Sally about my progression of Final Major Project.
As you can see I stuck to a more warmer selection of colours, and I wasn’t too particular with my positioning of the facial features of the subject. Thinking about the choice of warmer tones, I had been thinking about Kadinsky, within my work, which led me to listen to a more upbeat selection of music and in conclusion, I believe the music did help me to be more bolder within my way of working.
Upon reflection, I really liked this spontaneous way of working, and so I painted another portrait in a slightly different style, as pictured below. However, you may notice that the tones in this portrait are considerably cooler and this could be conjunctive with the choice of music, which I chose to listen to; a more calming selection, which I personally prefer to the other portrait, which comes off more harshly.
Placing both of the paintings together, you can really see the differences within the way I have worked despite- still focusing on the same subject. If I was to be critical of my work, I would say that as I progress with my styles, I should think about texture, and how that could express a certain mood e.g rough surface reflecting a feeling of anger.
