Finally, I got to see my biggest inspiration in exhibition! Andrew Salgado is the reason I started painting portraits, and seeing this selection of work has definitely inspired me further. His use of colour, shapes and textures creates multiple layers to his work, and with the use of colour, he is able to influence the emotion of the painting.
I have been thinking about different ways I could use this in my work. I’m already sewing into canvases, much like he does ; attaching different canvas parts and materials together. But I want to add shapes and brighter colours over the portraits.
Something to think about for when I start my next series of portraits !
