Naked Pictures

So I felt like painting during the holiday break. I have hired a model for my own work several times, but she’s a bit expensive, so I thought I’d work from myself in a mirror (I’m cheap). I’m doing these little fast paintings on paper to supplement my other work for a gallery show, as these nudes might sell easily here (well, more easily than my bigger conceptual paintings…)
But looking at them compared to some of the Turkish models, you can really tell which ones are Kloe, and I feel a bit weird about it. Maybe it’s a hang-up with my own body? I don’t know, but maybe I can’t show these studies in Turkey…
