Couple Snuggles on Sofa, acrylic painting | Couple Snuggles on Sofa painting

Enamorado con Amor/In Love with Love continues with this expressionistic piece.  Without love what kind of creatures would we be?   

The background is heavily textured, applied with a knife.  Strong colors fore and aft with strong highlights on the sofa and edges of the figures.

Bass Violin Player | Bass Violin Player painting

Bass Violin Player

 
Continuing the exploration of music related themes, here I add the movement of the arm and the swing of the leg to contrast with the movement in the background. This is acrylics on paper. The curvaceous movement of the leg ties with the curve of the contrabass, as they seem to dance across the stage. Strong and unusual colors make the painting dance off the wall.

Paula Modersohn-Becker

Paula Modersohn-Becker

 

Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907) is best known as one of first women to paint female nudes.   A German painter and very important early expressionist, She is credited for the introduction of modern painting and used tempera almost exclusively.

In a brief career, cut short by an embolism at the age of 31, she created a number of groundbreaking images of great intensity. She is becoming recognized as the first female painter to paint female nudes. Using bold forays into subject matter and chromatic color choices, she and fellow-artists Picasso and Matisse introduced the world to modernism at the start of the twentieth century.
