The original of this is a pastel painting in Richard Schmid's awesome book Alla Prima. I fancied a change from animals and loved the exuberant colours in the original and let's face it, this is as close as I'm going to get to having a Richard Schmid painting in my house :lol:

Wow! Well Done! Will be taking my pastels to figure class this week and Richard Schmidt via your painting just opens up the possibilities! Thanks for sharing! Perhaps I need to look for his book.

Not into nudes and didn't notice the bum icon but nicely done.

hello
don't know the original pix .
saturation/contrast on the figure is very strong and unexpected from schmid ,
but , the articulation of the hair grabs my eye right away
and then looking down along the body .

kudos to the model who held that pose ! :D

i've made a few ' after ... ' paintings ,
and my guests always seem to be drawn to them
compared to my work ... :rolleyes:

good to see this :)

Thanks guys - Ed, it is more muted in real life and Mr Schmid's version even more so but I can't get a photo of it that doesn't make it appear more saturated on my screen for some reason...
