Steam Stag at Sharkey's

2d: George Bellows | 3d: Bryn Oh

This piece is based on “Stag at Sharkey's,” a painting by George Bellows. The strong use of line in the composition and his ability to create a dynamic sense of movement in the figures is what drew me to this work.

When creating “Steam Stag at Sharkey's” the main thing I wanted to achieve was the sense of movement in the central figures. A feeling of strength in the back leg of the lefthand model and a spring in the spine. An impression of a scene without filling in unnecessary details.
