nude reclining – sketch group – Original Oil Painting Blog by American Oil Painter Daryl Urig

8 x 10 inches, oil on canvas

I wanted my rendering to capture the simplicity and cascading lighting in this image while remaining sensitive to the subtle color changes in the model’s skin. I decided to capture the light and dark pattern and color changes in a beveled form. Although I made the painting of the figure more linear, it was the atmosphere that I created that held the painting together by merging the figure and background.
