I always wanted to be a painter, but the dream seemed too big to believe …
Painting naked figures is usually what you need to focus during the early stage of learning how to paint. Life drawing, which means fast 1-5 minute sketches of a naked or half naked model help to learn proportions, perspective and get a better artistic understanding of a human body. After a few sketches, nudity stops being anything unusual and parts of the body remind rather of a geometric figure than something sexual. What interests me the most are figures in relation to other figures and their environment.
Painting directly inspired by the performance Körper (Bodies), directed by Sasha Waltz – a great German choreographer and dancer.
