Artist's description:

This is one of my favourite of the Humanist Icon series, as it captures the golden skin of the model in the yellow ochre hues, and creates an alluring warmth that plays nicely off the gold leaf.

As with all my figurative works I created this in front of a live model. I painted the image with oil paints I mixed on the palette as I went, and created the warm highlights and cool shadows that I think captured the light and twist of her body. By using a palette knife to create the figure, I keep the colors clean and pure between each application of paint, and it gives a rich and varied texture.

This is framed in a wide black frame that complements the luminous tones of the painting.

Materials used:

oil and gold leaf on canvas
