Beautiful use of color. I second the comment about the variations of white in the tub. Not sure if the distortion in the wall/tub perspective is intentional, but I think it does lend the work a bit of a surreal feeling. Neat!
wow, after reading some of the above comments about nipples i APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENT; COOL YOU THOUGHT SIREN , I WAS THINKING MERMAID, I HOPE YOU'LL CHECK OUT THE REST OF THE SERIES, IT'S A SERIES ABOUT WOMEN AND WATER..THANKS, C
Can you get an adult filter on this? Yeah, I get that it's art and has meaning, but somehow art has a way of manifesting as tits, tits, tits and naked young women (always young) more than half the time on this site. By the site's rules you have to censor naked breasts, and it's not that I'm a stickler for rules or that I have a problem with sexuality, but I do have a problem with the overwhelming objectification of women on this site and of seeing women constantly reduced to their body parts (and always young women, too). You don't see "depth and meaning" manifested as naked young men anywhere near as often as you see "depth and meaning" manifested as naked young women here.
cassannder...., the nude woman has been present in the history of western art(painting) much more than the nude male. These are facts. I think it's got to do with the longer lines, and smoother curves... And I do agree that in this centuries-long-history often it has been the case that the portrayal of the female nude was exclusively from a sexual male perspective. I am sad that you see that perspective in my work though. I am passionately devoted to representing women as a more complete (rather than just a sexual) being. I loved all the comments here about seeing the woman as a "mermaid"...that's sort of more what i had in mind; it's consistent with the series i'm working on now about women and water...please check out the rest of the series,i hope you will see MY point of view, not art history's ... thank you , cynda valle
I agree with you. This specific painting, in my opinion, is very well done and tasteful, but most of the art on this site is just porn that people insist on being art. This painting should have an mature content filter, but at least it's not some bimbo flashing her privates in a crappy cellphone picture while a bunch of horny creepers insist it's deep and meaningful art.
Agreed. Personally, it bothers me that well-composed, beautiful pieces are supposed to have an adult filter just because you can see a nipple somewhere, while a bunch of badly-drawn anime bimbos who are almost nothing BUT breasts are okay because they're fully covered.
Right? women, tastefully displayed, shouldn't suffer the same grouping as hentai or crude drawings. When the skill and message screams LOUDLY above the slightest of nipple, why should the artist be censored?
Because idiots think it's dirty? Because shortsighted people can wrap their minds that the feminine frame can be masterfully showcased, not just a sexual dumping ground.
