Figurative Art by Patrick Palmer
Patrick Palmer is a figurative artist based in London. He is all about capturing the female form - subtle, classical nudes in oil, charcoal, graphite and red chalk, images emerging out of nowhere and escaping gracefully into life to tell a story. All emotions are expressed through posture and detail, happy or sad, wild or calm, seductive or hopeful.
He chooses along the way what parts of the body are important to fill in and what to omit, that's why every piece of his art is unique, authentic and minimalistic to its core. The passing of time forces improvements in almost all aspects of life, the missing body elements of almost every painting convey this message directly to the viewer's psyche. Besides the less is more principal.Patrick's distinctive style of incompleteness is his way to interact with people who see his work, by giving them enough information sets them free to fill the blank parts. He is very spontaneous and at the end of each day he uses up all his leftover paint on experimental canvases, with no restrictions applied, just playing and experimenting.

About the Product
The Prettiest Girl in Town - Limited Edition Digital Reproduction.
My most popular painting. I love the emotion in this pose and have tried to simplify it down to its very essence - less is more.If I'd filled it all in, the lower, less-important parts would compete with the focal point (largely the face, hands and suggestion of pose). The eye is drawn to the face and the brain (having been given enough clues) fills in the lower parts.
