Ed, a friend of mine, decided recently to start painting. Since I've done a rather lot of painting (though not recently) I've been talking to him about paint and colour and all that fun suff. I was telling him about an artist I thought he would like... I am terrible with names and i was beating myself over the head trying to remember... But somehow he found the artist on his own: Jenny Saville... her work is amazing though be prepared to be disturbed if you look her up. Looking at her work had me inspired. Above is a tiny little acrylic painting 6" tall, finished it in an hour last night. Based off an old sketch i found a few posts back, inspired by Jenny Saville.
