from a dad's view

Red among blooms – nude

This is a quick pencil and marker sketch that I’m possibly going to paint in the future. I haven’t had a lot of time for my art but I’m hoping you stick around and not give up on me. I believe when I go to paint this painting it will be in grays or black Β and bright reds only. Let me know what you think and your opinions. Β Thanks, and keep visiting!

    You have so many different styles. I LOVE it. I think the greys and bright red is stunning. Love the idea of the tuplips and red hair.

  2. I think it will work really well. I like what you have, here, already. This is hauntingly like a book I read titled “Rose Madder”. That was also the lead character’s name and I think she had red hair. Anyway…reminds me of that book.

    • This was from a photo on the web, so I’m not sure where it comes from, but I really like it. I would love to take my own photos and hopefully a camera from my wife is soon to come (hint, hint if she’s reading this), but how to approach a model to pose nude in a field of flowers, without looking like a perverted old man, and not get the camera slammed over my head by my wife… I better stick to photos from the web! LOL

  4. love this idea, I would agree, keep the grays with the bursts of bright reds, I would love to see this done in a really large size……

    • Thank you Karen,
      I’m thinking of using a long and narrow canvas, like 3 or 4 foot long and half that in height. We’ll see!

  5. I like your version of “Lady in Red “,wondering how will she change…thanks for visiting

  6. Lovely work! Whimsical and haunting at the same time – an unusual combination. I bet the painting will be very interesting.

    • Thank you Alex,
      I hope to get started on it soon.

    This already look so nice to me. If it’s any larger i guess the lady will look very much sexier, i already know you have good hands especially come to drawing figure. Can’t wait to see the actual size. By the way i’m not really a pervert..hahaha..just joking.

    • Thank you Linda,
      I hope it turns out like I’m thinking.

  10. I like the reds…

    April 26, 2010 at 4:39 am

    • Thank you, the reds are a little more brighter on the monitor than they are in the painting, but I’m really liking the gray and red theme.

      April 26, 2010 at 1:04 pm

  13. Wow, I think you’ve got the perfect colour combination as it is, look forward to seeing the painting.

    April 28, 2010 at 4:12 am

  14. Those red flowers are spectacular, as is your figure with her red hair. Would love to see this as a painting, but I think you’ve really captured a wonderful image here.

    April 28, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    • Thanks, I’m hoping to start soon on the acrylic version.

      April 29, 2010 at 4:36 am

  15. I would LOVE to have this hanging on my wall. Just as it is now. What wonderful talent you have !

    April 30, 2010 at 5:58 pm

    • Thank you so much for the compliment. It’s always exciting to know someone would hang or enjoy my art. This one is only a 4 x 8 inch sketch, the painting is going to be about 2 x 4 feet. I hope to start on it soon, but others must be finished first. Thank you again for your kindness!

  16. Wow! I love this! I love paintings however, I can’t paint nor draw to save my life. I’ve been looking the ‘perfect’ painting for my boudior so I’d be popping to check your blog for ideas πŸ˜‰

    Keep them coming πŸ™‚ xxx

    • Congratulations on your new home and I hope you find the perfect piece for your wall. I am going to paint this piece in a large canvas painting, but I have others to do first. Thanks again for visiting!
