Figure artwork can be in a wide range of mediums. Some may be in metallics or acrylics only, others will encorporate textures, oils; It really depends on the posture of the figure/s and the way I want to present the image.
My subject matter is wide ranging. I look for visually striking movement or representation when searching for inspiration. Some figures are from my imagination, while some will have aspects of images and photographs I have taken, seen or admired.
I like my figures to be free flowing. Parts of the image will have an illusion of detail; what these details are is left to the viewer to decide. A figure can then represent different things to different people.
