Body Positivity Nude Portrait Canvas Painting by Victoria Blouin

Oil Painting Portrait’s Origin Story

I really wanted to create something big, bright & red. I’d been participating in quite a few figure studies at the time. So, figures were in my mind, specifically plus-sized female bodies. As a plus-sized lady myself I had been very much enjoying working with Jen, a curvaceous gorgeous model.

Jen is a super awesome, nice, friendly, confident person to work with. Although I have a rather healthy relationship with my body, she helped boost my confidence.

Large Wall Art Challenge

I knew painting a 6′ x 4′ canvas was going to be a physical challenge, so I decided to push myself even further by doing a complicated visual perspective depicting the figure in a complex foreshortened pose, which I find intriguing.

When I introduced this composition to my art professor, she said that it reminds her of Baroque-style ceiling murals.

It’s definitely going to take a BIG wall to host such powerfully bright and bold large wall art.

Stay funky, stay inspired!
