Assignment 4: Contemporary Painting, FINAL PLANNING AND PAINTING

After a seminar about our ideas so far, I decided that I could keep it fragmented, but use a melting effect instead of broken glass, as it is more relevant to the idea of baking and it is a recipe.

Below is my plan progressing.

I eventually came up with this final plan, using George Condo as inspiration for fragmented faces, and then letting the sections slide down. I then had the task of finding some wax to melt, which wasn’t easy.

I drew this design out on the 1m long canvas, gave it a brown wash, and then poured the melting wax on it.


Here is the painting progressing…
