THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Asian Nude Study Painting depicts a woman sitting with her legs tucked beneath her, facing the camera. Presumably Asian, this woman has medium-length hair that flows down to her shoulders. Her image is captured in short and colorful brush strokes consisting of tan, white, pink and lavender. She is sitting atop a white and red polka dot blanket and gazing at the viewer, though the features of her face cannot be seen. The background features thick layers of paint that provide a subtle texture to the piece in colors such as pale green, yellow and blue.
