Girl on the Beach

Oil paint on primed canvas, using brushes and palette knives.

This painting is about transferring ideas from previous smaller study pieces to a larger scale. Heading in to a new series called ‘FaceScapes’, I plan to explore the idea of how peoples surroundings affect them and vice-versa. How people’s moods are affected by their environment and the landscape being a reflection of people’s attitudes towards it.

Mostly geometric shapes are used, layered amongst more obscure organic shapes to represent the human form. This stylised approach is employed to convey an exaggerated translation of the way I perceive the hidden design in the natural world.

The main idea is to approach portraits from a unique perspective, using colour and geometry to portray the subjects’ expression, emotions and other non-verbal communication. Where the subject’s features or details are not specifically outlined I use shape and colour to illustrate the missing information.

*Ready to be hung on wall as is, paint wraps around the sides, to match the front. See wall pic.
