A recent nude study, completed in the last few days. I was experimenting a little, wanting to move away from depicting the model in a too literal way. Wanted to use colour and heighten it. Capturing the features of the model wasn't what interested me on this occasion. In my next paintings I want to explore the use of texture of the paint, thick and thin. Sounds easy! In fact working outside of a well established norm does take a leap of both faith and courage! As I often tell my students, painting isn't at all easy. It's a constant battle. This painting, measuring 20x16 inches is for sale, please visit:
