Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter "Intimate Light" - WIP

MY IMAGE(S):



GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: "Intimate Light" - WIP
Year Created: 2003
Medium: Oil
Surface: Board
Dimension: 20x12
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!

MY COMMENTS:
This one has a way to go......
I'll be building up more texture and the "environment" around her as I work toward a finish. There will be lush,..softly-colored flowers coming up from the lower left;...and the antique lamp needs to be developed, as well.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
All comments/suggestions are welcome

Thanks for taking a peek Jim.
I too sense a special painting here;..simply because I'm going to take the time to make it one. I'm sensing alot of pleasure will come from expanding on these figurative paintings;..including bits and pieces of the environment around them.It's fun to simply 'knock-out' a figure with an abstracted backround,....;but adding touches like furniture, flowers,..etc. feels like it will help to make them more human and MUCH more interesting.
No more painting today. Too much port and partying last nite.
I've got a.......................headache.

LOL. Exactly to the point Jerry. Thank you for stopping by. Cheers.

Thank you, Giniaad.
There does seem to be a subtle sexiness here..............
Perhaps,..that MAY be one of the reasons that I'm enjoying the process of painting her.....immensely. Cheers,-Scott

Glad you're enjoying this one,..Helen. I've done just a bit more. I can't seem to keep my hands off....of her.
More to come tomorrow....Have a good eve. -S

Really looking forward to the next few installments... especially curious about what you will do with the viewers left side. Can't tear my eyes away from there.

Thank you, Cath. It's just...........me.A very recent photo.
I am FINALLY happy with her hair....
From here on,...the painting should be alot of fun.Just developing the lamp,....and lots of loose flowers cascading up out of a small brass vase on the lower left..... Thanks for looking...-S

Hopefully,..Somerset,... : I'll be able to incorporate some loose,..lovely flowers in various shades of ivory and lavender into the lower left,...along with stems and abstract foliage. More COLOR....... Cheers

Luzie,....if this inspires you,..YEAH!..;I've done my good deed for the day. Get some sleep.. Best,-S

justice is being served well in this work. I really like how this is turning out. I'm not a greedy person, but dang I have to have this one when done.

I see nothing that needs to be improved with this and I am most eager to see its completing. One thing I did find was a phallic (sp?) symbol just to the right of the hair which was a little interesting.

The 20x12 vertical size is a challenge to work with and this is looking great compositionally and its quite interesting.

have fun,

bocote
