After: Finding Color With City Behind



After: Finding Color With City Behind






I have been meaning to do this for some time. The sketch is of “B” in a five minute warm up pose at the end of last year. She had such attitude. I wanted to give her color, putting her in a setting where her attitude could be appreciated a little more.
Painting: 12”x 24” acrylic on stretched canvas
Sketch: 17”x 14” ink on paper

  1. Bonjour cher Anthony,

    La couleur lui apporte une belle sensualité... et derrière il y a des connaisseurs !!
    ❁ Gros bisous ❁

  3. These are truly fabulous!
    The original sketch is intriguing...but when you add the city background, well, what can I say...only WOW.
    She is out of place, being naked in the city...yet it feels so natural here, in this setting...and so dramatic.
    She truly belongs here...:)

    1. Thank you
      She did need an environment. Though she still looks sort of lonely even with place and others.

  4. The attitude is shown very well, and balanced excellently against the whole town! Wow! Who will tame such a temper...

      It would be such a shame. Attitude as expressed, shouldn’t be embraced, not tamed☺
