painting in oils of a nude woman crawling, seen from above

On all fours in oil

I needed to capture more than I could by drawing: the subtle nuances in light and dark and variations in color of the skin. So I started following oil painting classes, the traditional way and became fascinated…Initially my tutor made me create a practice piece, copying a part of a painting by van Dijck. But I soon wanted to use the techniques learned in my own work, so (after a failed painting, which I intend to correct later on) I asked dancer and model M to hold this pose for me while I was standing on the table, looking down upon her.

All my art is for sale, just contact me.

Here, in four stages, you can see the creation of this painting, measuring h70cm x w50cm. Clicking/touching a preview opens an enlarged version with the option to have a look at an even larger version.
