While it’s true we have been travelling for many weeks, I was glad to get back in the studio the day after our return. I wanted to create some fantastic Fine Art Nudes and Jayde was only too happy to jump on board, especially once I showed her my ideas.
“Basking in the radiance and sunshine from my soul” is a creation of an amalgamation of some of the Masters, Renoir, Rembrandt, Cezanne and possibly a few others thrown in as well. I have added a slight painterly look, with soft muted colours. I was tempted to not cover up the green hair and tattoos, but it did not quite fit the Masters’ theme, so I painstakingly hand-painted out each tattoo and the hair. I must say I love the old world feel to it. I’ll put the original below.
The title? Well, there is just something almost ethereal and glowing about the image, the model looks so relaxed and peaceful. It is also a reflection of HOW this kind of art makes me feel. Soft muted tones, but still with a grungy feel, adding to the feel of old world Masters. We had such a fun afternoon and got wildly creative with some ideas I had floating around in my head.
