Once again I’ve returned to doing a figure and this time a nude. Actually I like doing nudes. I think the human body is a great subject for art just as any other of nature’s creations. Truth be told I started this painting over a year ago. Not an unusual thing for me. I’ll have fits of ideas for paintings and take them far enough along so that I can return to them later.
Man On A Stool is a straight forward light and shadow figure study done is an Impressionist style. The lack of detail is deliberate, the background only suggests a wood floor. What I have concentrated on is the light and shadow.
