This is a dramatic and striking nude, a dark and emotive piece that invites prolonged viewing and conversation. It is bold and contemporary with a lovely sketcherly aspect. The colors are rich, tawny and warm.
This piece is Oils on Canvas painted in my signature ochre technique using layered washes and strategic removal of paint to create a wonderful three dimensional look and a strong emotional feel. Skin tones are produced using this technique with colors and glazes to enhance the emotive qualities and sketcherly aspect of the figures.
The canvas is used as an element in this painting lending it’s texture to the overall work. The colors are warm, earthy and sensual with a wonderful tonal quality.
