Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Nude walking in woods (X-Post landscape Challenge)

Hi all,
This was originally posted as part of the April 2019 challenge in Landscape the attached quote below was the inspiration.

Acrylic on canvas, 16x20

“The autumn leaves blew over the moonlit pavement in such a way as to make the girl who was moving there seem fixed to a sliding walk, letting the motion of the wind and the leaves carry her forward. [...] The trees overhead made a great sound of letting down their dry rain.”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

The colour choices gives the impression the figure is part of the landscape- a successful interpretation of the quote I think.

Re: Nude walking in woods (X-Post landscape Challenge)

Thanks for your response bethanyt. The colors were all built from adding warm colors to greys, which were all built from fairly transparent blend of Alizarin Crimson, Hookers Green, and Pthalo blue mixed with white. My interpretation is more late evening than night time. I tilted her a bit in the direction of the wind (judged by her towel and her hair movement) so it looks like she is in motion, even though her feet are barely separated.

Very cool feel. Makes me think of Botticelli somehow.

Also great quote from Bradbury!
