Reclining nude – Red hair and creamy skin

Reclining nude – Red hair and creamy skin - Stephen ScottRed hair - reclining nude
Oil on Board
21 cm x 25cm

This painting was done in the same style as the Nude on a Persian carpet – there are a few similarities – both girls have red hair, both were reclining (laying down) and both have a lovely peaches and cream skin tone.

This model has long curly hair, while our Persian carpet girl has a short, almost boyish cut.

The pose started with the intention of being as a short one session pose, but by tea time it was decided - we wanted a second session. The painting was therefore done over two sessions (about 4 hours).

Our studio is in an old school that has been converted into a community centre, so in the background we have the old school blackboard. It’s the first time I’ve painted it – usually we have a coloured backdrop hanging over the chalk board.

Mind you, I'm sure this posting would have got a lot more hits if the title was "sexy nude school teacher" - I'm sure it's someone's fetish :)

At some point during the evening one of my fellow artists looked at my painting and commented “Look, she’s floating on a cloud!” I’ve since added more detail to the sheet… I hope it looks less like a cloud….
