This latest nude art piece is inspired by a young friend who posed for me. She takes great pride in physical and mental/emotional health- focusing daily on positive reflection. I found this inspiring and chose this pose of her to work from. I chose to paint the background in a few layers of mixed reds including cadmium, naphthol crimson and violet red, as inspired by my love of red wine. I feel the taste of good wine can exhilarate and excite like the freedom in being nude or loving your unique existence.
The red becomes a rich deep cadmium wine in moderate room lighting and then lifts to a crimson red in bright daylight.
This piece is ready to hang and impress!
