Using More Modern Imagery

Following the outcome of my previous paintings I felt the subject matter I used just wasn’t interesting enough in terms of the actual image. This led me to this image below which I founde on the daily mail newspaper.


The pose of the man falling was the most interesting to me as it could appear almost playful if I painted it in a very painterly way. Which in turn emphasises the horrific nature of the shot.
