"Whirlwind" by Paul Wright, oil on board ("developing a painterly language... the subjects are glimpsed rather than exposed, their inner selves hinted at but ultimately inscrutable")

Annemiek Tichelaar. I like the sense of mystery given off by this artwork - I also like the thoughtful position that they are situated it, making them seem like they are a thoughtful person - much like my perception of Caleb.

Jenny Saville. Another type of technique I could use for my growth piece. On one portrait I could use this material to show the growth in materials over the years and technique.

Jenny Saville has a style of painting that is very interesting to me. You can tell exactly what it is but she pulls out colours and doesnt blend really neatly, in some places the apllication of paint is obvious-a change in colour, highlighted or shadowed.

Ideas actually fragment the vision, intuition, or experience of reality as a whole. This is what the mystics are perpetually telling us. Words cannot give you reality. They only point, they only indicate. You use them as pointers to get to reality. But once you get there, your concepts are useless. -Tony de Mello #demello #awareness
