Artist's description:

This is an oil painting of a naked young woman lying down with her head on her arm. It was worked from a life drawing, outside of the life drawing studio and has a black wooden frame. I was interested in the geometry of the figure in the cramped picture space, so that there is a clear vertical division just visible at the top of the picture which is carried down by the midriff of the figure. This opens out as a triangle at the bottom of the picture, and other triangles are formed by the left arm and shoulder around the head, by the leg at the top right and in a partially hidden way by the right arm, hand, shoulder and head. The overall form means that the eye is taken, in either direction, from head to foot.

Materials used:

Oil paint

Female figure lying down (2006)
