figure painting Scott


Hi Matt,

This painting looks boring to me, maybe because the pose is so straight and I left so much dead space. Wondering what additions  or alterations you’d suggest to improve composition.

    Hey Scott, this isn’t boring at all — it’s got that Modigliani sculptural quality, or like something from Picasso’s Rose Period, say “Boy Leading a Horse”, that has the same moody, frozen attitude. Not dead at all! But frozen, like an usherette in a Hopper, waiting for someone who’s never going to come. It’s really evocative.

      Well I doubt it deserves that kind praise, but thanks anyway..
