A swimmer revels au naturel in ripples of cadet blue water. Tiny waves radiate from the swimmer’s motion. Connoisseurs who collect art nude photography will appreciate the rich bold colors of this kinetically charged image. The artwork is full of energy, depicting a swimmer that is working her way through the water.

Her hair sweeps in dramatic sweeping lines that surround her head. Framed by the darkest tones in the image, her expression is the focal point of the composition. Darks at the upper right, and the lower left, punctuate the scene. These dark areas imply depth to the water.

Tiny white caps appear near her legs. These areas of lighter tone illustrate the turbulence caused by her vigorous efforts. The bright areas also complete the tonal range from light to dark. Most of the image are darker tones and saturated colors. The white caps play an important role in drawing the viewer’s attention. An arm, outstretched above her head, is barely visible beneath the surface. Her foot, to a lesser extent, disappears beneath the water.

The body occupies a horizontal portion, near the center of the image. However, this glowing golden figure is not entirely centered. Her feet are very close to the left of the frame, while there is ample room to the right. This additional space between the head of the swimmer and the direction of travel, suggests continuous forward movement.

Whether you have just begun to collect art nude photography, or if have been buying art for a while, it is easy to add this artwork to your collection. The size should appeal to serious collectors, while the price remains affordable relative to other art forms of similar size, such as oil painting.

Considerations

The brilliant emerald/turquoise color of the water in this artwork is beyond the limitations of most digital screens. The physical artwork will likely appear significantly more intense than as shown on your screen.
