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.
Acrylic colour on handmade thai mulberry paper, deckled edge, 21 x 31 in., 55 x 80 cm.
The paper I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. The resulting paper is a thick parchment paper, strong yet pliable.
Here for the print I have cropped away the uneven ‘deckled’ edges which are with the original.
The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
Then there’s a glimpse of the studio with the work in progress.
