Title: Reclining Nude
Medium: Oil Painting on Board
Status: Original Painting
Dimensions (cm): 100 x 50
Reclining Nude reflects Sheila’s love of rich colours and curves. Curves of the face, the body, or a native plant or a bowl. Soft curves.
Her natural style is more ‘polished’ rather than done with thick strokes (impasto). She prefers the look of smoothed out paint.
About The Artist
Sheila Playford is a contemporary artist based in Wellington, New Zealand.
Sheila has always loved nature’s organic shapes and enjoys painting in acrylic & oils.
Her painting style could be described as somewhat stylistic; abstract at times, but mostly representational.
Sheila now also enjoys painting in watercolour as it holds many surprises. Last year she also moved into using alcohol INKS on YUPO and other papers as she has found it can give such exciting results.
Her work has been featured in exhibitions by the Academy of Fine Arts in Wellington.
