Dark Room Nude
"Dark Room Nude" is a female nude figurative piece on archival paper. This is a mixed media painting which includes, watercolor, acrylic, and pencil, plus. This type of work does require glass.
I drew out my figure and then added my collage around and on the figure. Then I started painting areas. I again chose the teal hair which separates all the brown/warm hues within the figure and the negative space. I enjoy the variety of textures without them competing with each other.
The figure allows a number of the negative space to play through her.
The paper measures, 21" x 14", but I would expose an area of 17 1/2" x 10 1/2" trough the opening in a mat or frame.
