Here is a painting I started last spring but could not finish it. I find it last night and I am happy I finished it today. Looks like people don’t like my nude figure :( and the nude figure is not my favorite subject either. Hopefully, not more nude figure next year…

Your nude and figurative work is very good and I do enjoy your posting this work. The figure as subject gives all artists a challenge to improve on all levels of technique and emotion in painting.

Fongwei...your nudes are absolutely gorgeous and my favorite subject that you do. PLEASE don't stop doing them. I look forward to each and every one and would purchase one today if I could. I truly think figurative and nudes are your best subject regardless of what you may believe. As artists, we don't often see our own work as others do. I'm studying at atelier and hope someday to do as well as you.

I'm with the rest, Fongwei. Don't stop doing the nudes. They are great.

Who are these foolish people that don't like your nude figurative work? Shame on them.

Hi DKM, Susan, Dean H.and Tom,

Thank you very much for all your comments. I will keep doing the nude figure painting, at least this year because I need to finish 12 big and finished pieces for my final project. The reason I choose the subject as my final project, like DKM said, it is a good subject to improve artist's technique. Same time I will focus on develop my own style after I learned all techniques I want to learn, I hope some day when people seeing my painting they can tell who did it with out look the signature...

Have a nice day!

I think that your nude work is your best. You capture the beauty of the female body extraordinarily.
