Euan Uglow

I like Uglow's work very much, and not just because of his preferred subject matter (see last post). He has a very basic, bold style of painting where he concentrates on shadows and perfect form. I love the precise nature of his work and he often accentuates a linear aspect to the round form of the naked body. The poses are very beculiar and unnatural too, which suggests he has chosen them because they provide the best shadow and most interesting curves and lines to daw or paint. His work seems rough, almost unfinshed but it is still very accurate and I love the outcome this provides.
