I've been studying portraits with some frequency, so to change the pace, here follows a quick study of the female anatomy.
I searched my reference folders and found a beautiful photograph shot by Amanda Com. I thought the pose and lighting was very interesting and decided to do this painting for study purposes.
It is always good time to do some nude paintings to improve my understanding of how light reacts in the human body. More to come shortly!
This study was based on a photographic reference. The painting was done in Photoshop CS4 with a Wacom Tablet Intuos4.
The photo belongs to Amanda Com
