Abstract Nude Art --- Oil Paintings on Canvas

The three nudes in this blog are part of a large series ( about 10 paintings)
that I have been working on. They were painted directly on the canvas
using a live model. The line work is very solid and linear with abstract modeling
and cubist shapes. I have recently become aware of the art of Alice Neel.
Her body of work is being shown right now at a gallery in Chelsea.

I haven't been to the show yet but I am looking forward to seeing her show and being inspired by the art. She was a prominent bohemian and pioneering woman artist in the mid 20th century who is best known for her portraits and nudes. Sound familiar?
