Painting Project


 This is “models by a wicker chair” by Edvard Munch. This is my favorite painting of his and a great example of expressionist portraiture I am interested in doing. The painting that I posted before this is my first time painting in this style and I thoroughly enjoyed it. For my last painting project I want to do a series of portraits. I am not interested in portraying specific people rather to have images that could be most people. Personally i would rather paint women but I am considering have the subjects be gender neutral. If I do this there will be more than 1 person in the painting and they will be embracing. I am concerned with the issue of marriage that should not even be an issue. These paintings will focus on love and the intimate moment, rather than the sex of the subjects. Another aspect of it is the idea that the male is always the masculine and female is the feminine. In relationships these roles can be reveresed even when the couple is the opposite sex.
