Stripes and the Nude


Delilah Smith
Art by Delilah

Thinking, nude
About This Painting: I like to put stripes in my paintings so I had to add the blue stripes to this nude study, I have always liked the Color Field painters works so that may be why I need a few stripes every now and then.

For years, the fashion world has told us that vertical stripes make the body look slimmer because they draw the eyes up and down. Horizontal stripes supposedly do the exact opposite, drawing attention to the widest parts of the body and making us look like swollen watermelons.
So I think I will just use curvy ones and make them wonder. To see more of my paintings visit my web site Delilah-Smith.
