Nude of the Week – Recurve

Recurve - a new nude by Jennie Rosenbaum

The second piece to match Extend. Did I do them intentionally as a bit of a diptych? not really, I came up with the poses as the same time and became a bit fascinated by this color palette and backlighting. I also wanted to see if I could do something this complex on such a tiny surface. it turns out the answer is yes, yes I can. I am very excited by these two pieces, painting at the moment is enthralling because I never have any idea what is going to emerge. with each piece I learn a little more and get a little better.
I chose this title because her pose reminds me of a bow being pulled, she is taught and tense but ready. ready for what? I have no idea.

One thought on “Nude of the Week – Recurve

  1. Taught and tense……I think she is about to cum
    but I think Extend is really the better of the two
    But as long as you are working your hardest at the
    painting and taking risks….not being afraid to
    really wade into it….you have to be able to nearly
    wreck the painting to hopefully finally triumph
    ….Life wasn’t ment to be easy M.
