Artistic inspirations for an emerging student of art.

Malcolm Liepke almost exclsively paints women that are reminiscent of catwalk models with their pouting lips, button noses, large eyes and slim physiques. His semi nude paintings I always found too similar to contemporary photography of these kind of women found in magazines the world over to really be of interest. However when he fully clothes them and isolates them in a quiet scene, aside from being able to appreciate a masterful composition of colour and characters, it seems one is discovering these astoundingly pretty girls in daily life across a proverbial room as it were. Which, I have found, is always a fascinating experience.
