Garden Cream 1 I'm not ready to post... but maybe soon..

The color is shifted of course..

I posted this in response to someone who asked why I didn't include the head:
My goal is often to present the human form as an aesthetic object. The head and face provide identity, which sometimes I'm trying to avoid.. In this picture, which has a more sensual feel, the absence of identity helps people see what they want to see.. some see a lover, some feel a caress, some see only a perfect shape, some see themselves. .



as always please comment.. and please look at the rest of my gallery if you're a new visitor


Model: :iconrosiebug: Rose



I've been persuaded to get a print account. . this is available .. consider supporting a artist who just bought a house he can't afford.. :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-06-27
There is something magical about Garden Cream 2. The dramatic hues and comforting pose round out to a beautiful nude portrait. =Mfenberg's work is generally captivating, and always creative. Check him out sometime! ( Featured by Mike )
:iconmxjerrett:
This is by far one of my favorite exposures to date. The contrast between the leaves and the model's body are phenomenal, and it creates an incredibly pleasing view of the body.

The model's fair skin still retains enough contrast to have a massive impact, and the artists choice to close-crop the model's head out of the image was a fantastic choice. This crop allows for an enjoyment of the natural human form, giving this a very creative, yet sensual appearance.

The natural lines the model's body creates leads your eyes across the photo, making every detail important and apparent to all viewers.

The color choice was superb, as it did not distract from the focal point, but still lends beauty to the overall image.

Overall, this image is very beautiful and thought provoking, and personally, I wouldn't change a thing.

How lovely! I never would have thought to place a model among Heuchera leaves. The contrast between her creamy skin and the rich hue of the leaves is near perfect. Thank you for such creativity.
