The first project of the second year of the fine art course was based around the brief Personal Development. After briefly addressing the subject of the human figure in the first year, i decided to base this project on the human figure. I was inspired by artist Egon Schiele because of the emaciated appearance of his figures. I wanted my work to be purely about the figure and not about personality so i always focused on the body rather than the face of the figures that i worked with. Towards the end of this project i began to focus on hands as i was inspired by the stylised way Schiele drew hands.
