Acrylic on Canvas 30″ x 40″

The picture depicts a nude woman lifting the gossamer drapes aside as she strolls out on to a marble beach terrace to greet the early morning sun. I created this gallery wrapped wall art as a birthday present for my ex. I had the usual problem where you just can’t decide what to give someone. She’s always liked art deco, has several Vettriano prints (her favourite artist) and figurines and sunbathes nude at the drop of a hat. I only had a couple of days left so used acrylic paint on a gallery wrapped 30″ x 40″ canvas to dry in time.

I’m not well versed in anatomy or art deco but had these influences in mind while painting. Literally the hardest person to extract a compliment from I knew I’d done ok by the elation on her face. She absolutely loves it and it hangs in pride of place in her home. She shows it off to everyone and it seems to have overshadowed her prints by other artists. She jokes I’ve painted her nude from memory which I suppose isn’t that far from the truth but I wouldn’t tell her lol. At least there’s one wall in the world where my work outshines¬†Vettriano. ūüėČ

Not sure if I’ll create any more nude canvas art like this but maybe I’ll print some posters of this picture one day.

One thing I was particularly pleased with in this painting was the way I seemed to capture the glow in the shadows of the body. I like the flare of light on the nets to the left and that I managed to keep the view of the surf through the nets to the right of the picture.

If you enjoy this canvas art at least a fraction of the amount the owner does, then I am happy.
