arcrylic on box framed canvas.

There is a whole lot of glare going down around her breasts and gown, the orange in the gown is the same as the orange in her hair, if that gives any indication to the amount of colour lost in the glare.

She seems a little less wecoming in the photo, its lost detail from her face which makes her smile a little weak.

comments welcome...

She seems direct, dauntless, perhaps confronting. I like that her smile isn't smiley, gives her more of an assertive feel. I want her dress, going into fashion design as well?

Deevaa, I hope you will do more of these "fashionable" figures!! I agree with ZOTMA..very direct..confident..and (wouldn't ya know it!!!) I ALSO really like the dress.

One of my goals is to combine sensual/erotic fashion (and figures of course!) in my paintings and drawings.

By the way, (personal opinion time here)..I've always felt it unfortunate that these kinds of fashions are not seen...more often. I have seen them often in fashion magazines, especially the european editions, but, I suppose, unless you are a "jet-setter", and spend your time at Monte Carlo...I seldom..(NEVER!!!) see these kinds of feminine..revealing fashions in the USA. We are seeing the use of more sheer fabrics in fashions (big smile here!!!!!!). I suppose in SOME circles...one might find women wearing a dress like you've drawn.

I get a sense that the general attitude toward revealing fashions is that they are "inappropriate"..or perhaps only to be worn within a circle of intimate friends.

It would certainly require confidence in ones self...to wear your dress.

Deevaa, did you get to Veronica's website?? (she is the model I'm working with recently) Let me know if you have not..and I'll email you the link.

Thanks Michael, I probably wouldn't wear THIS dress... but mostly because I don't go anywhere to get dressed up for!

I do where some things that raise a few eyebrows here and there though! I'm an American size 16 so it takes confidence to wear revealing clothes because of the negative attitude attached to being 'rubenesque'... although some woman have a problem with associating tight with sexy, which isn't always the case.

I got to see the Gianni Versace exhibition at the Museum of New Zealand (Te Papa) a few weeks back and it was wonderful to see the wonderfully sensual lines. It made me remember WHY I wanted to do design...

However when I was in the USA I found that many places we went I was over dressed, infact we went to a really lovely restaurant one night and I was the only woman there not wearing jeans. I very rarely wear jeans even in the weekend.

Deevaa, I love what you did with the dress, I'm also curious why the 'creature' is a cyclops. It seems to be a recurring theme in your artwork, but why?
