Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

"Nude Shadows" Figurative Daily Painting

Original unframed oil 8"x10"

Those curvy, violet shadows and the slight torso twist were an interesting contrast to the straight lines of the blinds behind the model. This strong young woman was also my model for "Deer Skinners Back".

Diana, I've admired so much of your work, I think you are so gifted. But this, this is my very favorite. It's stunning! Bravo!

Diana Moses Botkin said...

Suzanne, thank you. It's truly a compliment when other artists whose work I love are enjoying my efforts!

I hope one of these days... or years... we can get all get together to paint. Wouldn't it be fun?! I keep thinking some year in the future I'll be able to travel around and paint in different places.

Good figure painting and a nice pose. Ditto on the curves vs the straight lines on the blinds.
