‘Reclining Nude’

date : 2008

size : 33½” x 23½”

medium : oil

notes : First in the series of semi-abstract nude paintings by the artist; these are based on drawings and photographs of the figure, and mix brushwork with impasto.

comment : “I find that the shapes made by the human form are an endless source of interest; I was taught to ‘paint what I see’ not ‘what I know to be there’. I like the distortions and ‘false’ perspectives gained from studying lounging figures.”
