De La Tour
Here are two paintings that I did this past semester in Painting II, one for our "Master Mentor" assignment and one for my final. The Master Mentor assignment required we use a "master" painter, in my case Georges de la Tour, to inspire our work. I used him because of his sense of light and dark within most of his works. specifically I looked at his Magdalena series. I decided to do another piece inspired by him for my final. They are hard to photograph because although they are mostly black, the paint is reflective and it is hard to get the same feeling from a photo that you would from standing right in front of the painting.
