OMIGOD!
The mood is overwhelming. The view from the window could stand alone with its architecture and angry clouds. The nude & her shadows are excellent. I am a mood & atmosphere kind of person and this work just hits all of my buttons.

I think Jerry meant front.

This is a wonderful work. its definition is clear and clever. I adore the 3 extremes working so well together (figure, building, storm).

have fun,

bocote

yep, those are my Paris buildings...I took so many photos of them

This is incredible...first look for me...she is so beautifully rendered and those clouds!!

Is this where naughty French girls dry themselves off?? In front of the windows?:o

I've never heard a RULE about not reposting work...especially the likes of yours Anthony!

There happen to be many new people at WC all the time, who would never be able to experience your outstanding paintings....I've been here a year & haven't seen this so I don't think there is any abuse of the posting...:D

There is a hint of contraposition occuring in here. That is good. May I suggest that you up the ante in that direction. The image itself is good in the execution. Now, we just need to further your intent. :o)

Always push your direction. The contraposition that you began with the painting isn't as complete as it could be. The intent is clearly there...especially in your title.

The painting tells a story...a moment...a description of what Sabine is thinking. However, As I said earlier...the intent can be pushed a little further.

All that may be necessary here is a couple to a half dozen layers of transparent glazes.

Here's a hint...chiaroscurro. :o)
