figure study




This is a study I did last year of a model named Karl. He is a dancer and he was stretching at that time.
Oil on Canvas, 10 x 12.

Hi Josef! This is really cool. You can really feel the tension in his pose.

I think when doing small paintings like this one, the value composition is very important so you can draw people in from across the room. Right now those two dark slivers on either side are the only thing that would stick out from a far distance. Maybe think about the background or pants?

I love this Josef!

It's so deftly rendered, and a great seed of an idea for a derivative work. I am inspired by ithis.
