In a season where neutrals shot with color is the banner trend, I felt inspired by one of my favorite painters of nudes. Eric Fischl's work depicting the dark side of suburban life was not originally embraced as legitimate art, but today he's considered to be one of the most influential figurative painters of this century. Fischl's work often has a hit of bright color tempered by light and shadow and seemed a perfect foil for some of resort/spring's newest arrivals, not to mention my new Naked At the Beach 4FREE Nail Color trio has just arrived!
How do you feel about nudes/neutrals with shots of color?
