LUNCHEON ON THE GRASS
This painting serves as a color and compositional study for a larger painting that I intend to undertake.
The inspiration for this painting will be taking its cues from Edouard Manet's painting by the same title
as well as pay homage to lush romanticized images such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir's, "Luncheon of the Boating Party".
I hope to borrow from these works, the essence of leisure and pleasure in nature, the warm play of light, a boldness with color, and for the depicted shapes within the painting to feel communal and engaged with each other as the figures do in these masterful paintings.
