Have been asked to paint my first painting commission: a nude.

Any ponders. I am female. She wants this to be a gift for a male friend who lives far away.

I can imagine Bratby being rather good at that:

But I did forget to say congrats, Hun - it is a tribute to your skill to invited to portray someone so intimately.

100

my latest notion is that if what is happening ortrying to happen to me would work as a Seinfeldepisode......'nuff.

oh, thought you said "while nude". Bad my.

What's your style, Hundreds?

I did one for a GF a while back and was quietly pleased with what it captured, as was she.

But I was brought up short when she said she liked its Egon Schieleyness. I've asked others since and they say no, don't worry.... but still.

Did you complete the commission, 100s&? Did she like it? And, perhaps more to the point, did he like it?

How is it May 2018 already?

-10 points. I must have missed this thread the first time round, and thought it was a new one by Lapsed.

It was on the nudes.

No one is supposed to know

or even invent a theory

about how Vermeer died

but he did die in Delft

in an average Spring.

Perhaps.

Maybe the circumstances of his death have been glazed over.

The dude had 17 children...you would think at least one of them would have been a Columbo fan.

I'm mostly shocked Carlos did a nude painting of greenfuture

Why not give your portrait a flavour of Bacon.

Hundredsand - 03 May 2018 09:33:43 (#38 of 41)

That might be alright to Munch on.
