How to Perfect your Impasto Painting

I’d always been heavily influenced by Lucian Freud and work that was hard won; photographic in a way but thick with paint. However when I moved back to Leicester from Bristol, it just wasn’t making me happy anymore. I literally bought canvases and big brushes, and decided to work on the head. I tried to make it more physical and expressive with thicker paint and took more chances; with the work I did before, I wasn’t taking a chance and suddenly I was working on something that could go wrong at any minute. Subjects I treat all of my paintings as ‘portraits’. With a subject that is quite emotive, I push myself to ‘feel’ paint rather than just see it as a mechanical device. Heads are my constant – the subject I go back to if I’m having a difficult time or want to push the work forward. My double portraits are about the relationship between two people in the same space.

Az aktfényképezés története egészen a fotográfia születéséig nyúlik vissza, hiszen Daguerre felfedezése után nem sokkal már az első aktfotók (dagerrotípiák) is elkészültek.

Az ezidőtájt készült aktképekre a pikáns témavilág volt jellemző, majd később egyre nagyobb igény jelentkezett a művészi aktok és az erotikus képek jelentésének pontos megfogalmazására, valamint a kettő közötti határvonal meghúzására. A fényképezésben élen járó országok sajátos megjelölést találtak a művészi akt megnevezésére, amellyel kellőképpen kifejezhető volt a tevékenység művészi rangja.

Warm up sketches from last night’s visit to The Moon and Nude life drawing class at The Sun pub in Clapham… Great poses by the model… (who organiser Julia has just informed me is called Yuka).

The same pose from different angles.

We then join these together to form words, then words form sentences, sentences form paragraphs and paragraphs form stories. After all, we wouldn’t dream of expecting someone learning a new language to start by writing a novel! Yet when we are learning to paint we want to start by painting a picture. Beginners are often inspired by the subject matter, which they often ‘draw up’ on to watercolour paper, and set about studiously ‘colouring in’ the shapes with washes.

Unsurprisingly, disappointment often follows. The act of simply colouring in shapes with washes doesn’t allow opportunity for the medium itself to be fully exploited. We know our arty alphabet is a few letters short, but it's nearly there! Liked this? Related Articles. Sketchdaily Gesture/Figure Drawing. Figure & Gesture DrawingFigure & Gesture Drawing.

Line Drawing: A Guide for Art Students

Whether self-taught, through trial and error, or guided by others, we learned how line defines form, creates structure, divides a frame, traces contour, creates tonal variation (cross-hatching, for example) and leads the eye from one part of a work to another. Initially a mechanism for getting outlines onto paper – identifying edges – we begin to applaud lines for their own merit: celebrate their presence…whether a quiet flick of charcoal on paper or a streak of graphite. This article contains exercises for Art students who wish to produce contour line drawings, cross contour drawings, blind drawings and other types of line drawings. It is a teaching aid for high school Art students and includes classroom activities, a free downloadable PDF worksheet and inspirational artist drawings. Figure Drawing References.
