About this piece

Original mixed media painting (Oils, Spray, Charcoal) on acid free paper by James Shipton.

With this project I was attempting to create an image of the human form incorporating the golds of Gustav, the lines and shades of Degas. A major inspiration for this work was Blondie.

My works are heavily influenced by the art work of Degas and Gustav Klimt.
My desire is to capture the beauty of the female human form, whilst portraying human isolation. I achieve this through a process of capturing reality through life drawing using charcoal sketches, breaking it down to deliver an impression of the human form, whilst capturing the psychological complexity of the human nature through the portrayal of human isolation.
Following the breakdown of the human female nude, I use the sketches to the build and create paintings in oils.
Certificate of authenticity included.
