Hello Artist Gang friends!!!This is a very special Artist Gang Tuesday post for me because ONE- It's my birthday and TWO- I'm currently teaching IN PARIS!!!I've been uber organised with getting my posts finished early and actually painted this one a few weeks ago. I have been bursting at the seams to share it with you all because I just love how it has turned out!
I've painted on a 16"x20" stretched canvas using only a selection of different sized palette knives and some vine charcoal. I do think I use my finger twice.
I've always loved nudes and really wanted to try them out. I am seriously thinking I'll do a series of these now that I've done this one .... and I might even adventurous and try on a bigger substrate.
I used all Golden Heavy Body Acrylic for the body of the painting (no pun intended) and then outlined and created some shadow with the vine charcoal.

I am a self-confessed art-a-holic who lives in South Australia. I have always been an artistic person right from a very young age. I’ve been blessed my whole life to be surrounded by encouraging and inspiring artistic women including my mum and my grandma who were both amazing oil painters. I attribute my adventurous nature to their continuous encouragement and support.I discovered scrapbooking more than 15 years ago when my children were much smaller but only recently have I returned to developing a more expressive style in my art. I still love my scrapbooking but I really like to stretch my creative rubber band and delve into new artistic territory. My recent passion has been with exploring eco art options and incorporating lots of recycled, re purposed and nature items into my art.
