Profile and Facing Portraits

Both profile and frontface portrait compositions
are often difficult to represent as 3D form.

It is important to suggest shading with 
tonal areas, colour or gestural marks.

Happy New Year ....A Good Start

Always good to start a New Year on a positive note ....

So what better way than going to see the Anselm Kiefer
retrospective in Baden Baden at the Frieder Burda Museum.

Here is a link to the work in the exhibition.

The monumental scale of his work just does not translate on photographs.
The sculptural thickness of the oil and acrylic paint on lead and canvas
strewned with poppyheads and sunflowers have to be seen "in the flesh" with
Lead Planes, Submarines and and Ladders all together in this span of Kiefers
astonishing output.

Real Art !!
