In my above painting, Soccer Player, I wanted to emphasize the structure of the figure. I did this with modeling the light, half tone and form shadow. I did not blend these areas so that the form and volume of the player would be accentuated. When I stress the figure’s movement, I frequently blend and smudge edges. However, the diagonal direction of the figure in my painting contributes to the movement. In Marcel Duchamp’s painting, Nude Descending a Staircase, No.2, the artist conveyed volume and space with his use of light. Movement was achieved by overlapping the figure several times and moving it downward.
