Re: Man and Woman

I wasn't familiar with your inspiration reference so I looked it up. You've captured the essence of the reference.

Looking at the painting alone I see a small issue. The feet of the man (especially) and the woman look to be floating and just pointing their toes towards the ground. The woman not so much because of the heals she would be positioned somewhat like that and still be standing correctly. The man however, even accepting the primitive style, appears to be floating. His heals I think should be lowered to match the angle formed by the bottom of the woman's heals and toes, which form a proper angle when viewed from above as they would be.

I like the primitive style and the woodcut like appearance of the work.

Re: Man and Woman

I like the position of the woman's arms and both of their tiny hands. The eyes and faces are fun to keep coming back to bc they are interesting and difficult to figure out what they might be thinking (in a good way).

The angle of the guys neck and his feet kind of make it look like hes being hanged.
