A note on showing nudes
Some of my earlier posts include studies of nudes, which is part of every artist's repetoire. Visitors to this blog have indicated that the find them a little much, so I do like to warn people beforehand - but then again, you see worse in any of the great Art Museum Institutions anywhere in the world. Studies of nudes are not pornography, they are merely an attempt to study human anatomy without clothing, in its purest form, and to capture the light on the skin, and to attempt to render the artist's own viewpoint, a wonderful challenge when it comes to foreshortening.
