I think it is great, lovely, soft. However, because of others' sensibilities, I think it needs the "nude" or, rudely, the butt icon, for those who choose not to view this type of image.:)

In your more recent paintings I notice you've remained loyal to your 1986 brushstrokes ... good ......... !

This is the first time I have viewed any of your work --- I am impressed.
A wonderful composition which is well balanced with a fine palette.
Your brush work is bold and free which adds to the beauty of the painting, and says something about the artist -- one who is sure of themselves and their brush strokes.
Great choice of colours, but if I may say the blue value seems a little strong; however, an artist of your ability must have had a reason that I just don't understand.
I have reviewed some of your other postings and I like your style. Great Stuff!
Thanks for the posting -- I have truly enjoyed the viewing.
This is a beautiful and delicate nude. Wonderful.

One more thing -- was this painting done in the studio, at the beach, fantasy, photo........? And the size of the painting?

Thx all for looking and comment.
Javier: the size is 27,5x37 cm.
It is painted from a magazine.
Indeed the sky is to dark, it is just a mistake, there is no reason for it :D

Jan I like it very much. Colours are great, also composition. And I like the loose style. Very nice.

I love the bold brush strokes on the figure.
Not to sure if I like the background.
I would of soften the edges a bit more on the background, that way she will stand out more. & the background will appear to recede back more.
But that's my opinion.
