Nude with Arms Raised - original oil painting of a nude
This nude is done from a life drawing that I posted a while back and just now got around to painting. I know one is supposed to paint no matter the lack of inspiration, but I just can't!!! Must wait 'til the stars are in the right position, etc., so I can get going on some of these projects that have been languishing. The pose couldn't have been easy for the model - keeping one's arms raised can get pretty tough after a bit. As I recall, we didn't take the full time. I love being in a group where the other artists respect the model - have been in some groups that didn't, so I didn't go back there. This is on 14 x 11" paintboard. Thanks for looking!
