Artist and model

50 x 65 cm
pastel on paper
Ocober 2007


Back in the studio working on my favorite subject, the female nude. Here you have the model in a lovely flowing gesture. Seen in the mirror is her reflection and the artist at work. The strenght in this work lies in the positioning of the model, slightly off center, anchoring the rest of the composition in an elegant fashion. The colors pay hommage to the tender emotional state of the model.

This is the better way to go - the yellow paper and subtle chalks. And you should hire this model again - she seems serene and curvacious and obviously inspires you.. fine work.

Alberto, haven't been around much lately but I'm enjoying getting your paintings in my mail.
