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!
