Artwork information

Oil on board, 26 x 35cm


This image was painted from life in my studio from a model who had recently begun sitting for artists. As a painter early in their journey, it's a great instance of freedom of expression for two relative newcomers in a moment of repose and charged with eroticism. Featuring a seated nude male model with blue background.
