Nudes from Marini Sculptures

These painting were done from some photos of sculptures by the Italian artist Marino Marini.  Actually I majored sculpture about a million years ago.... but now I am doing more sketching and painting. His sculptures are inspirational. as I was working on the painting with the palette knife it almost felt as if I was back modeling clay.

 Oils on 40 x 60 cm stretched canvas using the palette knife. Limited palette.
