How refreshing to see a real nude, in real light, in real real relatable setting. You can add to that real bodily forces, at work at work in everyday common the garden movement. Bravo!
One of the things that keeps me away from putting much work across all genres on the Internet — particularly on photo discussion sites — is the compulsion for monkey see monkey do. Nowhere is that more prevalent than in photos of nudes.
I have a Finnish mate who runs regular Life Drawing classes in pubs around Sydney and, although there will be similarities in choice of media and technique, and given that there are a number people sketching the same model at the same time, from different vantage points in the same lighting each of the results is quite individual.
Despite models and the nude having been my only subject for about half my working life I post very very few due to concerns about intellectual property and an absolute refusal to acquiesce to Internet requirements of censorship.
As I say, quite refreshing. Thanks.
