Re: Botticelli Julia

a lovely work, the hair is beautiful, but what is that strange thin black line?

W/r to the question, yes, I do buy nude art. But generally work that is more freely handled than this one. I'd definitely buy certain Botticellis (if I had the money )

Cheers;
Chris

The black line is an accidental brush stroke when I had to resize the image for this forum.

Really well done! Pastel is ideal for this subject when handled well- and you have certainly shown your skill here.
(and I was fortunate to see a real Botticelli)

Re: Botticelli Julia

Richard I had a browse through your website, and you have some wonderful photographic studies of faces, and I note that you strive for a similar feel with your artwork.

I never buy artwork, I always have had too much in the house, no room to hang any more, my wife doesn't want nudes... and no money anyway!

This is an accomplished study

Mac

Glorious!

p.s. I already bought a nude figure, so my answer is yes.

Re: Botticelli Julia

Nice drawing. I don't buy any art! I've got an attic full of my old paintings with a few choice ones on the wall. None of these are nudes. It would depend on the picture of course but I would be unlikely to buy a nude.

A nice study the larger size of her left eye is a worry.
