EVOLVING ADAM

27/03/2020

The third post of this work in progress. Some changes have been made to the positioning of the legs and arms. However, the original figure and gesture of Christ from Bloch’s painting has not been totally erased. I am toying with the idea of meshing elements of the Christ figure with the Adam figure as if they are within each other.

Note how strong black bridging lines have been used to bring structure to the design. The painting is at an early stage yet I’m wondering if I really need do any more to the secondary characters? They fulfil their purpose as design elements so does the painting really need them to be developed further? Time will tell!
