I am finding my love for Art History again through my online art classes. One American artist who has always intrigued me is Margaret Keane.
She is mostly known for her big eyed portraits of girls, women, and pets. The enlarged emotional eyes of her subjects were poignant…often sad. And she often had light shining in the middle of subject’s face so that the eyes were more in the shadows.
Our projects are to create a piece of artwork in the style of the artist with our own flair. This is my first go at creating a big eyed girl and her pet. I went for a more cheerful atmosphere with my art.
