Oil on hardboard panel, 7″x5″

I love painting the highlights on shiny wet skin. This is one reason why bathers and people at the beach are favorite themes of mine. I was pleased to find some colorful reflections in the highlights on this figure.

Woman Bathing – sold

Bather (2)

Oil on Canvas 8″x10″

This painting was inspired by the lovely paintings of bathers by Degas and Bonnard. When I look at paintings of bathers in art history I’m reminded that bathing was something of a luxury in past times. These days a bath is no longer a luxury but a deep tub and the time to spend soaking might be. This study is also about contrasts, warm and cool tones, thin glazes with impasto highlights.
