Love this composition and your underlying drawing - gorgeous.

David- thanks for your supportive comments.

Edward- Thanks and I am a great fan of yours too!

k8degr8- Thanks and actually- all my drawing on my nudes is done last. It is never an underlying foundation to my painting. It is an accent and defining exclamation point, if you will. The paint is the foundation that helps me to build and shape.

Sure thing.

And that's a neat way to work - painting first, then drawing the lines secondarily. Probably part of the reason these look so dynamic. Good show.
