Nude in a Dream

First of all, I just have to tell you how excited I am about this particular painting.  It was one of those that just flowed out of me with very little fuss.  As soon as I had set the background up, with a wash of acrylic and water, I immediately knew how my nude would need to be incorporated.  I had decided several weeks ago that I wanted to take a stab at painting a nude (out of my head…no model for this one).  I have always thought that the female form is one of beauty – our natural curves have such an amazing flow – and I have many sketches that I have done of nudes so I felt it necessary to get one on canvas.  In any case, this one just worked out so nicely… I hope you enjoy!

    Very beautiful Hilary,
    The human body is an absolute marvel of grace and mechanics. Although would not fall into that category, there’s nothing more beautiful, especially the female form. I really like the colors and the running of the shadows, background and the beautiful form.

    I actually missed this, Hilary. I love the colors you chose and the way you turned bright color into something that read restful.
