Painting (looking into realism and positioning (linking to book of the dead in Egypt))
Alyssa monks is am American painter who does very realist paintings normally of humans. her amazingly real artwork catches the eye to be a photograph. When painting the person she loves to use water and steam within the painting image. This has lead to a lot of her art being people bathing or in baths and showers.
these are some of her works. I really like these are the colours she uses are not too bright and are very natural. One thin that Alyssa monks aims for is the idea of you being able to put yourself in the persons position. I don’t think I can relate to the second and third image, but I do find it hard to look at the first image as the water being in his eyes makes me feel weird as I know I hate that feeling. so I cant look at the image in a combatable way.
I want to use the idea of realism painting within both my abstract and a new idea I have had. i want to have a painting of both a water lily skull and person on my abstract paintings I want to see how each one looks and works with the abstract so I’m going to do a lot of abstract backgrounds.
I also want to do a more refined piece where I want to do the idea of generations a lot more and have a realistic paintings of different generations. I do also want to some how involve a water lilly into thiese as well.
Both of these ideas need to have a lot more work put towards them as they are not ready so I want to focus on experimenting with these a lot more. So from here I am going to so two post on me developing both ideas and what I want to get out of them.
