Figure model reclining on colorful pillows. She's a serpentine dancer in repose.

I may have gotten carried away with all the color, but I had fun with this. I'm learning about structure, form and color applied to the figure from Camille Przewodek- but I want to loosen up a bit as I apply what I'm learning.

Nude figure model seated on orange textile covered stool.

This was painted in two evening sessions with a group of artists I have kept company with for a number of years. I was seeing the contrasts of this model in the composition as reflections of inner contrasts. Soft against edgy...  Sweet against hard.... Warm against cool.
