You can definitely see the many colors he uses almost everywhere, to create texture and vibrancy. It's not just the lines. It's the many colors he uses and his seemingly random brush strokes which aren't really random. He's also swapping brush tips to add texture and layering like a mofo. Genius!My instructor for figure drawing class introduced him. He talked about the skintones as well...how Schiele uses a lot of different colors when you look at his paintings up close...like blues, yellows, pinks, and he really did something new with figures.
I find some of Schiele's work a bit too much, but I like the ones I posted too. lol
I think my instructor really liked him because my instructor was a fan of modern art, and Schiele kind of took figurative drawing into a more abstract space. He is an expressionist and yet he uses the concrete physical form as part of that expression.
I really like the boat one a lot--and then the couple and the water. But the water in the boat is just really amazing to me--that he managed to create such a visual affect with only scratchy looking lines. It's impressive since I find water really intimidating with all the ripples and reflections.
