For this assignment, I wanted to capture a mundane moment, almost candid as if someone sneaked a picture of me while I was drinking coffee at my dining table at home. But at the same time i wanted the painting to be self aware of itself being in a picture. So, my body is kind of tensed with hands in less natural positions. The rigidness i also wanted it to be expressed in brushstrokes that are made visible that kind of visually vibrate in their spaces instead of directionally flowing from one direction of brushstroke to the other. The rigidness I also tried to express in the contrast of the rigid subject with a wispy kind of background to create some dynamic relationships so as to bring out the qualities of the different brushstroke types.
