I have began to look at different points in Streetcar to start my narrative on.
1. Blanche and her husbands suicide
I looked at a stag as blanche’s husband because to me that symbolises beauty and heaven. Which now and again suffers a painful death.
I painted different coloured backgrounds to show blanche’s emotions changing when she things about him
2. When blanche kisses the paper boy.
I created this image where blanche is covering the boys mouth.
This reminded everyone of Lucien Freud’s artwork in the group crit.
I then experimented with different media and objects to find the right character for blanche.
1. Magpie with a beautiful but dark coloured background
2. Charcoal to create fruit and flowers.
This experiment is where I initially came up with my final narrative.
