The bend of the torso is what inspired me to use this pose. By making her suit turquoise she seemed to become part of the ocean behind her. I really enjoyed painting this one because of the luscious colors and solid feel of the body. My favorite places are the straight arm with the bracelet and the fabric over her knees.
