This painting is inspired by the work of the fauvist painters. I first used 2 layers of gesso to create a textured surface to add interest to a painting which I intended to paint in simplified blocks of colour.

Then I decided to paint this figure as quickly as possible to give the painting a feeling of energy. This can be quite tricky as there is a tendency for the image to become ‘muddy’ if the brushes are not washed out properly or if you try to paint wet onto wet.

I balanced the colours by adding grey and taking care not to overwork the painting.

If you are interested in having your own nude portrait painted by me (using photographs treated in the strictest confidence) please get in touch via Artfinder messages to discuss an Artfinder commission.
