how to paint like egon schiele
Mayko felt that the paper Schiele used was important to achieve the effects he did. Apparently he often used Japanese paper. She also thought he would have used dry brush techniques to get those rough marks creating these textures.
He often did foreshortened poses, which would help create a lot of those geometric shapes we talked about before. He demonstrated a great ability with perspective.
As a teenager, Egon Schiele idolised Gustav Klimt. Klimt was the founder and leader of the Viennese Secession and had a wealth of experience in painting, sketching and murals. In 1907, Klimt became Schiele’s mentor and the two developed a close friendship. Both artists shared artistic traits and techniques, for example they drew elongated bodies, used expressive lines and injected bright colour into sketches. Klimt’s influence is noticeable in Schiele’s works produced between 1907 and 1909. Schiele painted The Hermits (Self-Portrait with Gustav Klimt) in 1912 as homage to their friendship. When Klimt died in February 1918, a devastated Schiele painted Klimt on his deathbed.

Egon Schiele Online is based on Jane Kallir’s catalogue raisonné Egon Schiele: The Complete Works (published in 1990 and expanded in 1998). Like the print editions, Egon Schiele Online comprehensively documents the artist’s paintings, drawings and watercolors, 1 sketchbooks, graphics, and sculptures. Works within each of the five categories are numbered sequentially, starting from one; numbers in cross-references are preceded by a “P” for paintings, “D” for drawings and watercolors, “Sk” for sketchbooks, “G” for graphics, or “S” for sculptures. Artworks authenticated since the 1990 publication have been given numbers and letters (a, b, c, etc.) that place the works logically within the original sequence. Retaining the 1990 sequence makes it possible to search by numbers that have since become embedded in the literature and to avoid the confusion that would result if all the works were renumbered every time an additional item was authenticated.
Schiele was born in 1890 in Tulln, Lower Austria. His father, Adolf Schiele, the station master of the Tulln station in the Austrian State Railways, was born in 1851 in Vienna to Karl Ludwig Schiele, a German from Ballenstedt and Aloisia Schimak; Egon Schiele’s mother Marie, née Soukup, was born in 1861 in Český Krumlov (Krumau) to Johann Franz Soukup, a Czech father from Mirkovice, and Aloisia Poferl, a German Bohemian mother from Český Krumlov. As a child, Schiele was fascinated by trains, and would spend many hours drawing them, to the point where his father felt obliged to destroy his sketchbooks. When he was 11 years old, Schiele moved to the nearby city of Krems (and later to Klosterneuburg) to attend secondary school. To those around him, Schiele was regarded as a strange child. Shy and reserved, he did poorly at school except in athletics and drawing, and was usually in classes made up of younger pupils. He also displayed incestuous tendencies towards his younger sister Gertrude (who was known as Gerti), and his father, well aware of Egon’s behaviour, was once forced to break down the door of a locked room that Egon and Gerti were in to see what they were doing (only to discover that they were developing a film). When he was sixteen he took the twelve-year-old Gerti by train to Trieste without permission and spent a night in a hotel room with her.
Egon Schiele (German: [ˈʃiːlə] ( listen); 12 June 1890 – 31 October 1918) was an Austrian painter. A protégé of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. His work is noted for its intensity and its raw sexuality, and the many self-portraits the artist produced, including naked self-portraits. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele’s paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism.
