submerge

"Submerge", is a mixed media painting on 100% cotton rag, acid free paper. The subject is one of my favorite models, she also modeled for "Baptism". I love the coloration of my color base that also incorporates into the figure. Here the female figure is suspended , holding somewhat of a ballerina pose, as her arms, leg and hip area penetrate the water's surface. I am not as concerned about the water aspect, as I am with the overall feel of the human figure, my balance of color, and use of mass and linear. The entire paper measures approximately 30" x 22 1/2". I have attached a photo of the full sheet. I staple my paper when I stretch it. The cropped in version, not revealing that white perimeter measures approximately 27" x 19". Enjoy all the matting and framing possibilities. Enjoy, Nancy
