(PP.16 Body Study 45)
Previous question. Have you ever been in front of your canvas without knowing what to paint or draw on it? For this never to happen again, I have a good method that works.
To exemplify this, I added the following work:
Title: Head Study 45
Artist: Veronica Huacuja
Medium: Oil, acrylic and wax crayon on paper
Size: 15.7 (W) x 13.7 (H) x 0.1 in
Learning about... How to find inspirational sources for our artwork.
Previous thoughts. One thing I usually do is to be aware of the world events. So, one day, not knowing exactly the next artwork I wanted to work in, I found out an outstanding article in the news: The Curious Death and Afterlife of Eva Perón.
As we may know, Eva Perón was the fist Lady of Argentina (1946-1952) until her early death (1919-1952). Her body was extraordinary embalmed by the Spanish pathologist, Dr. Pedro Ara. After accomplishing his work, and since then, her corpse seems to be alive, just like being in a deep slumber.
Eva Peron’s afterlife is a long one. In one of her transcontinental trips her coffin fell and her nose broke. This detail inspired me to create the artwork of an unknown female body with a broken nose. I think I will make up a series of women’s portraits with broken noses.
My experience doing this work. To make up the work, I sculpted and painted a female’s head and her torso. I used this clay figure as my model for my oil and acrylic painting.
