Art Contests Accepted Artists
Artist David Perez
Los Angeles, California USA
Series 7 Figure 7
This piece is a study of the figure in a transitional pose. I focused on the elegance of the twisting figure in this piece. Once the form of the figure was captured I began to initiate a series of washes to accentuate the aesthetic of the piece. Prior to each series of paintings I initiate, I engage a series of figure drawings. In this piece I experimented with the interplay of media.
By using the contrasting tones acquired from charcoal and the white conte crayon, and the translucent effect of the wash, the overall aesthetic of the piece is properly delivered. With figure drawing, the form is of paramount importance. With this as a guideline, I worked in tonal variations only after the form of the figure was captured.
