Hi~
This is in pen on paper and 3" x 5".
All critiquing is welcome.

the treatment with the dual colored background
cleaved by the body
is a nice continuation of your series
all the symmetry in this piece
with the asymmetry offered by the body
has nice compositional potential
the lack of shading on the right breast
distracted me from being able to see that compositional shape play
a bit too dissimilar
I'm liking the idea and this crop tho
what do you think?

Hi Zot,
Thanks so much for looking and commenting. :)
I agree with your point about the right breast.
It is in need of shading, near the chest cavity.

Surreal,
I agree... Highlights that hot would have to create bold shadows.
So glad to see you didn't quite the nudes! With the technique you use will you be able to make changes to this one? If so please post it here.
Off to see you other latest post.

funny. i find the inconsistent shading on this very compelling. just gives it a little edge to me and works really nicely with the straight forward symmetrical presentation.

Thanks so much for commenting, Rosic & Ej.

I have decided that I like the surrealistic edge to the piece and will not add shading to the right breast.
