Reclined, Acrylic on Paper, 2015

Just like “Nude in Repose” I think I did a really good job with this figure. The only problems I have with this are the one foot seems a bit small and one arm seems a bit off as well. I like the couch and my color choices. The nose may be a little off too, but she does seem peaceful and relaxed.

I feel less and less embarrassed by my art the more I post. Even if they are not technically on point they still reflect skill and a style that is uniquely mine.

I’m posting every painting I have ever done from 2014 to the present, the good, the bad, and the ugly. With an occasional photograph or sketch thrown in just to mix things up. Check back daily to see my progression as an “artist”!

Excellent work!

I will just say that nudes should have an "nsfw" tag in the first position - this is simply to protect those who do not wish to see nudity.

I would also invite you to join the @DPorn tribe/community - which isn't just about pornography, but also about artistic nudity, erotica and similar topics.

Thanks for the kind words!

One of my goals is to De-stigmatize nudity, and hiding non-sexual nudity behind a "NSFW" tag seems counter productive to that honestly.

I am familiar with the #Dporn tag too, but I think it might also be counter productive to my goals, just because it does associate nudity almost exclusively with sex.

Dporn are striving to support a lot more than just porn - and will use erotica and boudoir tags as well, so you don't have to declare it porn, when it's not. (The nakedyoga artist is featured there too - I love his work!)

I agree with your goal though - I often muse about how it's okay to feature graphic violence, but not okay to feature nudity and healthy sexuality.
