Hanging Out

I was asked to do a female nude drawing from Petronela.  I really enjoy drawing and painting nudes, but it was my first time rendering a figure in a long time and it did feel a bit awkward.  Then the background did not work out, so I cut the figure out.  :)  Now I can put her anywhere and see how she fits into different environments.  The portable nude just hanging out on many different levels.  LOL!!!  I love a little humor when it comes the female nude as she is portrayed so serious most of the time.


Just hanging out on my couch.

  1. Very artistic! She is interesting: she is a cheerful woman, happy in her own skin and the whole drawing makes you feel relaxed and calm. This is my impression of it!

  2. Hi Suzanne,

    What's this? You enjoy drawing and painting people in the nude. Don't you get cold? Ignore me. Your rendering is most alluring. And with that, I shall render myself useless.

    Have fun on the couch. Um 'sofa' so good :)

    Right then, I'm outta' here......

    Gary :)

  3. Now I am curious to know who she is, is she an imaginary muse or you've been inspired by some beauty? I am very astonished of your artistic abilities Suzanne...if I were some sort of Maecenas I would ask you to paint me nudes exclusively :). Congrats :).

    1. I'm happy to hear that you have enjoyed my nude drawing. No, I don't know this woman as I work from photographs. I took this person from one of Lucian Freud's nudes. I did make her a little happier as his subjects look somewhat out of sorts. However, I love the poses that he creates as each position is more real than a lot of romantic nudes that are always sitting or laying in one or two positions. Perhaps live models are my next step. Perhaps when you are making lots of money from your books, I will come and paint you!!!
      Hugs!!!
