Late Saturday afternoon I took a drive down the seedy end of Carlisle St in St.Kilda to take a quick photo of one of it's street corners. This street corner will feature in my painting, and will house a couple of working girls (who usually frequent this area). This piece will highlight the seedy side of St.Kilda and city life in general. I've only done the base really, though hope to put the detail in this week. Here are some pics of my progress so far - sorry about the quality. These were taken with my mobile phone camera:)
Start of Base Colours
For the 'Working Girl' on the right, I'm using a sketch I did recently at a life drawing class for inspiration. Here is the sketch:
Daniel's works explore contemporary subjects and themes. They are predominantly figurative with much emphasis on mood and feeling. Daniel strives to forge strong connections between work and viewer, allowing the viewer to invest their emotion within his art. He achieves this with such devices as the subtlety of a subject’s gaze, body language and lighting.
Daniel studied Graphic Design at Charles Sturt University and has a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design. Daniel has also studied at Melbourne School of Art and Swinburne University.
