One of the best in a series of similar paintings. I’d like to think that there is sort of a dark intimacy between these two figures, and the mystery heightens that effect. I took a lot of care with the palate on this one to make certain things pop out of that darkness. I really tried to give that shape to the ribs and make it look human.

    actually i only noticed her until i read about the piece…the other figure isn’t obvious to me, that said this is a gorgeous piece, again the tones are fab particularly around the cheek bone, i like the fact that you’ve given her a flushness that accentuates the sensuality of the piece. great work!

    Great work, the separation between angst and the darkness is compelling.
