Leaning against a Tree

After a painting of Károly Kernstok.

​Károly Kernstok (1873 - 1940) was a Hungarian painter, 
from the "Neos" and the group of "The Eight" (1909 – 1918).
He was particularly influenced by the work of Henri Matisse

Traditional media

Oil Pastels on drawing paper
This is my own interpretation,
painted in a bold and vivid style,
maybe reminiscent of Cézanne.

alitta2Looks great!
Yes, by the style it reminds me much more of Cézanne's works than of Matisse's

SaltwaterThanks :D

I love Cézanne's style.

I have also found one or two landscapes from Hungarian painters (in Cézanne's style).
maybe I will paint one, always good to practice...
Looks like I am on an Eastern binge now!  LOL

alitta2That's great to know anyway ;)
There were numerous painters who were inspired by the works of Cézanne, notably in the early decades of 20th century, when the French culture itself had much more impact on art (including poems and literature as well) than anything else.

TeeJay87Lovely example of impressionism indeed. :)

Small tip - since that bloke is wearing underwear in your painting (looks like that), you can safely use Mild Nudity rating. ;)

SaltwaterThank you very much for your piece of advice and nice comment.  :)

In the original painting by Károly Kernstok that boy does not wear much...
But not much is shown, and it is absolutely not indecent (at least to my eyes)

However, I wanted to be cautious,
(in order not to hurt anyone's feelings). 
I decided to show even less.
Somehow, I managed to play with the shadows and colours.
I dressed him in light and colours!

TeeJay87You did a masterpiece then - the combination of light and shadow in your painting does look like underwear ! ;)
