The Stand Off(formerly known as masturbation)
Acrylics on canvas, 100x80cm.
I had a very different vision for what this painting was going to be like, but sometimes it´s better not to struggle too much to keep your original idea intact and just move forward instead. It's a dramatic motif, but displayed in a undramatic way with the body posing in a simple profile. I put more emphasis on shading and shapes intstead. I like it, but I´m afraid that it might be a bit too revolting to some people. Do you like it?
P.S. I used my iphone to take this photo, so expect me to post a better one on my webpage soon enough.
