Lighting is good. The standing on one leg gives it a yoga quality of strength and balance. But the position of the arms and head would suggest vulnerability. Like he is withdrawing into himself. Very nice.
I'll comment I am relived to see this. So much nude art is just young kids obviously wanting attention. When i look for nude art I'm looking for something to compare to the nude art I've seen in Europe. I guess me view is a little harsh, but that said. I like this piece.
