THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
In the Queen Painting, the image of the nude woman seems to have been exaggerated; her waist has been stretched and her hips have been accentuated. She sits sideways toward the viewer in a pose that is a classic in terms of the poses often used to paint the human form. Her waist is twisted with her long arm stretching over her body to come and rest against the inside of her opposite thigh. Her long wavy, red hair cascades down her back and transforms into a number of colors at the end, including orange, blue and cherry red.
