Portrait Project Update 3

Of all the artists I have looked at, I particularly liked the work of Egon Schiele. His paintings really resonate with me...

They have a very tangible quality especially the way that his figures really pop out of the painting and the way that you can really see Schiele's brush marks. Unlike a very clasical painting where the viewer feels detached from the painting, his paintings seem somewhat more 'human'.
