Klimt and Schiele @RA 16.1.19

Goals of the visit:

  1. Practice stealing Schiele’s quality of line, as part of the attempt to combine my life drawing style and detail recording style
  2. Check out both of their processes to see if it yields something helpful

.

Need to get a white compressed chalk to use in tandem with my brown ones and see if I can do something like this

.

Much earlier Schiele doesn’t have the energetic emotional quality of line characteristic of the style he settles into, but it is still really focused on line rather than tone.

.

What a thing to do, to decide your country needs more art and just start a journal to fix it, get all your art mates in on it. Oh to find a goal like that.

.

Working on nicking Klimt’s lines

.

^more of this white work on brown paper

‘real rather than idealised nudes’

‘the right posture to convey a particular feeling’ – art is about communication and emotion

.

“I went through Klimt until March. Today I think I am entirely different” – a sentiment for anthologies of the self. SAW17/18 I was going through Seferis. Have I let him go yet?

Colour, line. Focus on lines and outlines. Aura.

I should try gouache?

.

Remember the orange Wally brought him.

.

It’s absolutely wild to me that some people ‘paint better from memory than in front of a landscape’.

.

Stealing lines again.

.

This is really interesting to me. Can I use Schiele’s nature work as a model in my attempts to unite my free line life drawing style and more detail recording semi-scientific style?

.

^really simple way of doing faces. Look too hard and they start looking weird. Use this as inspo to practice faces.

.

Artist as a seer? Self portrait as Tiresias. Drag act as Tiresias lmao

.

EMOTIONAL LINE

.

Stealin shapes too
