So if you read my last post, this weekend we went to the art store in Kansas City and I bought the biggest stretched canvas I could fit in my car... it was 36"x60". Think of the possibilities! I have two ideas for this greatness. The first three sketches are different versions of the same picture.
I sat down one day and just started to draw a very fluid movement with the thought of a woman in mind. My idea was to draw a very curvy form that very sensual and voluptuous. In my mind it would be something very " 70's " disco in style with some crazy colors in the background.
In the process I was drawing arms in various positions to see how I wanted it laid out. Then I realized i liked the thought of four arms, almost like a modern Shiva statue.
If I chose this option, I am thinking of having the background black and the form being white. Very simple. I am going to do some smaller versions of this first... It is a big commitment to put something on a canvas that is almost as tall as me!
My second idea came more from the art museum we went to, we were in a part that was displaying some expressionism art and I got inspired. I saw a painting of some zombies eating the shit out of some dude. With the art I was looking at it was very raw and emotional strokes that represented face and people. Not that cool actually, but I thought about how raw and crazy I could get with a zombie painting. I came home and started sketching right away. My thought is going to be something like the above pic. A human being disemboweled by the dead. Once again it will be a background of black but with a lot of color.
My only trouble is do I want it to be very lose and raw or try and define the figure and the horror of being eating alive...
This is were I wish I knew how to oil paint, I could do some serious damage to this canvas. Anyway I will keep you posted.
