Truth – New Pearl Painting on Canvas

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty – that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.” — John Keats

TRUTH art nude of Liz Ashley by A.D. Cook

Truth” by A.D. Cook 2012

Completed on May 20th and signed during the solar eclipse, “Truth” is my fourth figurative painting for 2012, and features the beautiful Liz Ashley as my muse. Bold and powerful, Truth stares you straight in the face as she stands naked before you. Hard to deny that she is always there to remind you of her constant presence.

Created in beautiful pearl metallic root beer colored tints over a pearl white hand brushed base layered on a specially-prepared canvas surface. Metallic mediums mixed into my paints create a glistening effect with the changing light, creating a new experience with each viewing. In this painting my muse is portrayed about 1-1/2 times life-size.
