Zoom lifedrawing. Dryads in Berlin (at the edge of the Grunewald forest)

Dryads in Berlin (at the edge of the Grunewald forest). Acrylics and pencil on prepared paper. 90 x 70cm.
The same model (‘Y’ from Berlin) posed twice, each pose was for 20 minutes. The figure on the left was originally painted in a more considered, less wild way than the one on the right. Dryads are nymphs of the forest, specifically near oak trees. I’ve added a fig tree as well for various reasons.

The Figures in green reminded me of Matisse’s ‘Bathers by a River‘* and the Expressionist artist Otto Mueller. There is an Expressionist art gallery at the edge of the Grunewald forest in Berlin.
*I am obsessed with this painting.

The inspiration.

Some details.
