Naked Men

All REAL artists paint nudes, don't they? And since I'm a single female, I want naked men in my work. Lacking any real life examples that I can cover in paint and roll around on fabric , I've painted up a sketch which I will now stitch over. These are 3 separate bits at present, but will be combined into one. Posted by Picasa

I'm actually doing some stitching, Maureen - seeing as I lay awake for several hours in the night working it all out!

But, really, you did have a live model for this sketch, didn't you? Tell us the truth! :-)

Regrettably I can't draw, but I can copy by looking at a picture. I'm always worried if it's too close to the original, but that was just a sketch in this case. I've made some changes to the shape and lines, painted the outline of the body, and the background. No live model, unfortunately, Francoise!
