Day 24 clothless

The picture will be after the jump break so it will not show unless you want o see it (I discovered that the break doesn't show in the feed, just here in the blogspot).
My piece today is a nudie. I haven't painted a nude for the longest time. Years!
I have been using up my paint, instead of leaving it on the palette to dry. So I go and smear, glop, splash, whatever I have left into a new surface, that will become the first layer of that new piece.
Well, I had a bunch of black and I didn't really want to splash the whole thing. I just went with a very lose brush, just playing, delineating until this lady popped up. The arm with the apple was an after thought but it give her the whole theme.

 
Check after brake for more pics.


Instead of calling it Eve, I decided to call it "If only..."
