Artists are often censored when doing painting of the human form but it is a wonderful way to study and improve skills in all painting. Capturing the subtle changes in tone and hue can be challenging whether in a studio with stable light or working from a photo. Life drawing classes always test my skills to capture a reasonable likeness in a short period of time, but they certainly hone one's skills. This painting was done from a photo. I hope it doesn't offend anyone.
