Artist's description:

Sometimes … Life’s a Beach 2013
Whatever the pose, body language is always a fascinating subject. It should come as no surprise since it is to me the first and loudest form of communication. The nude as a subject, to me is uncluttered body language and I am looking to draw the body’s expression only. Here I want that body expression in a brown and green contrast with plenty of bold brush strokes
The paper I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. Mulberry leaves are used there to feed the silkworm in the silk industry, the sticks used to make the paper. The resulting paper is a thick parchment paper, strong yet pliable.
The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
