Fun art nude

A slender woman with fair skin lays close to the edge of a swimming pool in this fun art nude. The scene is picturesque, lighthearted, and high-spirited. She has long brown hair that trails into the water. Her arm hangs into the pool, playfully scooping the water with her open fingers. She has thrust her legs through a donut pool float, kicking her feet in the air.

The pose is carefully constructed: she curves her back sensually and her profile is oriented precisely to our angle of view. One of her arms extends beyond her head to fill the space on the left of the composition.

The color palette mixes the dark, saturated greens of the vegetation behind her with the lighter, more playful tones of the pool toy, her torso, and the light aqua of the pool. The swimming pool region consists of brightly-colored tiles and brilliant water that is close in color to the tiles. Less obvious are intense yellow sunflowers which hide in the bushes.

The design contains repeated horizontal lines. The most prominent horizontal line is the near-white pool decking that is visible from edge to edge of the artwork. Faint lines, both horizontal and vertical, follow the rows of tiles. These are aligned with the edges of the picture’s edges. At the top of the image, a hint of sky is visible along a narrow, irregular strip. This difference adds some diversity of pattern and texture to the photograph.

Aside from the bits of sky near the top edge, the overall depth of the scene is quite shallow. We only see a few feet (a meter or so) between foreground and background.
