An oil painting of a figure by chris beaven titled confused study

Confused Study


This is a smaller painting that is a study for an upcoming larger painting. The larger painting will feature a completely different figure.

I used this small oil painting to get a deeper understanding of the distortion of the image. This is part of my emotion series and I wanted the idea of “Confused” to pervade every aspect of the painting. From the pose of the figure all the way down to the distortion of the image I’m working from and the brush stokes on the canvas.

If you would like a print of this painting please send me a message with what size you would like here.
