#341 In the studio: "Feelings"

A work of art should reveal something about the subject beyond being technically accurate.  Learning the fundamentals, such as anatomy and understanding proportion is the starting point . . .
simply recreating a specimen of the animal should not be the artist's goal or motivation

The figurative artist is motivated by feelings about the subject and must search for and communicate an authentic message.

The animal is the design source.
