Outside of class my interest lies in painting. On of my greatest inspirations is Lucian Freud. Freud is known for his figure paintings and impasto style.
To the untrained eye his painting might seem rather dull but in contrary there is plenty going on, for instance his interpretation of the human flesh. Freud has developed and mastered replicating skin tones within his paintings. His paintings show a vast variety of colors, tones and highlights that closely resemble real life.
Another interesting aspect of Freud’s paintings is the positioning of his figures. Whatever the reason behind their poses, whether for the comfort of the figure or dynamic composition, Freud presents us with fascinating images. His figures generally seem to be lying down and have an odd appearance of sleep or possibly death.
