Pablo Picasso – ANALYZED PAINTING #2
Welcome back everyone! Yes, I know, you may look at this painting and be amazed that it’s a Picasso. Not his typical style, but I believe this was before he developed one. Here’s a great BLOG that will show the evolution of his portraits. This analyzed painting should give you a great understanding of how you can incorporate design in what seems on the surface to be a simple portrait. If this were a photo, it would be looked at as an unflattering angle. Most of the time, with a slightly overweight subject you’d want to shoot from the top down to avoid any double-chin action, but I think this captures his mother in a genuine way.
