the naked truth ...

Red Headed Nude - Limited Edition Print 30x20
i have/had in mind a series of nudes, and below of others; the blue room nude, the little cayman nude (in hammock), which i think's a very cool image, this - Sunday's Nude.
and next maybe a male-female nude ...
somewhere on the pages below is a nude I drew by hand in colored pencil; I used mainly browns and yellows ... i used those same tones here; so whereas in the 'Blue Room' nude her edges and lines and contours and shadows are all black this nude's are all browns.
anyhow, it's cool and sexy and challenging to do these drawings ... very cool. and they help me craft my work ...
lower down, in the post about the cricket art, i talked about playing within the theme of dreadyness - about how you use the dimensionality, the blocks of colour, the simplicity, the whimsy, the use of rasta 'insignia', that are all keystones of dready art and the breaking them down into something else as a play on the art itself ... so you do that and it refreshes your brain and your creativity.
