Joanna Evans Workshop

Frank Auerbach (acrylic on canvas board 60cm x 60cm)

This painting was the result of attending a workshop with Joanna Evans. The original objective was to imagine an artist wearing a hat and to paint them in a way which represents their style or associated artistic movement.

Unfortunately, despite several attempts to be as bold as Frank, I still ended up producing a rather literal interpretation, as well as neglecting to put a hat on him (I think he’d be wearing a coal miner’s helmet to protect him as he excavates the truth in his paintings). I also made his eyes too big, so he looks a little bit like Gollum. Sorry Frank…
