Drink Life Deeply, a fine art female nude life figure colored pencil drawing, highlighted figure detail


Female nude figure

Colored pencils on white Canson 70-pound acid-free paper

November 2007

Dimensions, paper and image: 11-1/4 inches (28.7 cm) high by 9 inches (22.8 cm) wide

An inspiring image of a beautiful red-haired woman with a healthy, voluptuous figure, shedding -- with joyful abandon -- her dark, heavy cloak behind her, to energetically drink from a refreshing waterfall. Her cloak is ornate and valuable, laced with gold and lined with dark-violet velvet, which contrasts so much with her luminous, light-peach-and-pink skin, it creates a positive-negative movement effect that gives the illusion that she is heading toward the viewer, and it can seem almost as if she were emerging, escaping from a dark cave behind her, in which she had been trapped helplessly. She can breathe and live again.
