Modern Aphrodite

I have always admired the way models tirelessly hold a pose so that artists can draw and paint them.

I once did a series of Aphrodites in several different media and then segued into the modern beauties who posed at life drawing groups, especially those with tattoos and piercings. I found this one the other day and it reminded me how much I enjoyed that series. This painting is acrylic on gessoed board, 20" x 16".

Thanks for stopping by!

You should have more comments on your beautiful work and interesting treatment of the "figure". Your blog is very impressive. So there you go.
