David Hockney Large scale drawing


David Hockney, born 9 July 1937, is an English painter, draughtsman, printmaker, stage designer and photographer. He was also an important contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960s. His tunnel series, inspired by his home county Yorkshire, is full of abstract and vibrant sense of woodland tracks and countryside lanes. I feel his time painting in the bold and strong pop art style has stubbly crept into these pieces.I personally like his more realistic painting  as the bright greens and blues portray a sunny day in spring time. I  think they create emotion as everyone can relate to them somehow for example it reminds me of being at my grandparents.

Hockney works in such a large scale he uses a number of canvases for his paintings. He  paints a lot of his painting in one point perspective, the use of this creates the effect that you can climb into the painting. I love to work in the expensive and inaccurate style of Hockney. In the future I would like to experiment with bright colours.
