Does It Inspire You?
Yes
This painting was based on a sketch from a figure drawing session of a male nude. I wanted to capture the relaxation of his seated stance in a chair along with the subdued power of the pose my sketch seemed to illustrate. An initial version of this piece emphasized his relaxation, and I added further details to establish contrast through a very worked-up background. His pose reminded me a bit of a cover of Ayn Rand's novel, Atlas Shrugged. The piece also explores the relationship between power and vulnerability (since he is nude). Finally, The heavy use of blue to establishes a sense of wisdom and sageness his old yet bright eyes seemed to contain.
