"The Yellow Robe" nude female figure painting figurative art portrait

I've heard it said that a partially-clothed model makes for an even more erotic image than one who's completely naked. Here's another example, if this painting doesn't convince you!

Goldie Hawn said the same thing about nudity. She is always partially clad. It is erotic ~ inviting the imagination to participate.

Beautiful piece Sarah ~

This is really great, love the flesh tones

Very true-it leaves room for the imagination. This is yet another wonderful piece. :)

I completely agree with you ... it is much more sensual to me to see a nude partially clad. This is just lovely... I particularly enjoy the palette in this painting.

Thanks, Teresa, Steinunn, and Dawn. Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks, Linda - I was a little hesitant about making the yellow so acidic, but I liked the contrast with the flesh tones in the end.

I love a well done nude. Your flesh is great and you did a really good job on the draped fabric.

I haven't visited in a while. All your paintings are excellent, as usual! You have been keeping busy...
