David Hughes + Jim Dine

Simon was showing us the work of David Hughes and Jim Dine today, as we were working on our drawings of our objects.

Hughes' style is simplistic, but very effective; along with his composition. I love how he concentrates on certain aspects of the piece, such as the bison's head, and keeps the rest of the piece simple. The creme paper makes a huge difference to the style too.

I love the brush detail of the paint brushes in the first Jim Dine image, also his use of negative space really is brilliantly effective.
