THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Red is a color often associated with love, desire and passion. The color has been used to excellently convey the artist's appreciation and desire here in the Red Nude 2 painting. The painting, completely colored in and shaded with different intensities of the color red, features the image of a woman lying on her stomach. The only part of her body the viewer can see is her back, including the dip in her spine, the curve of her lower body and shoulders as they extend to splay her arms across the bed she appears to be lying upon.
