Lottika - Sold

A beautiful figure of a beautiful woman. The human body has so much to offer an artist - angles, light and shadow, mood and of course, the challenge of skin tone and colour.

I find this one of the most difficult subjects to paint. You have painted it well. I Like the pose and the way you captured the covering, letting it meld somewhat into the background to make the figure stand out.

Your handling of both the figure and the drapes is masterful. An amazing painting!

I'd just like to echo the comments above - I like the composition as well- dividing the canvas into 3 bands of colour - nice to see you posting again.
