Final Major Project. Week Six

Week 6.

By creating the frame on the canvas but not painting the full figure into the frame the form becomes not fully confined, a woman is not defined by her physical appearance so I have been deliberately framing my images in respect of this. I dislike creating a boundary for the female in my work, positioning her fully within the canvas, as it traps her onto the canvas. The white square contrasts against the curves of the female giving it an aesthetically pleasing arrangement and frame but also highlighting the difference between a man made frame and the organic shape of the figure.

Instantly recognised that the figure was not the correct composition for this painting.
