Nude a week 36: Nude reclines arms akimbo

A study in gouache I did the other day.  I enjoyed drawing the curving black lines in Sumi ink using a small pheasant feather as a brush.

PS:  Illustrated Fluteplaying, the book I co-authored with Robin Soldan will soon be out as an ebook.  See for more about this,  Oh yes and see the naughty poem I got for a valentine at

PPS  My daughter Lucy has recently created a couple of amazing bronze women nudes. A picture is below.  You can see more and learn about the process of creating a bronze from her blog.
