Impressionist Sketches of Ginger Artwork Exhibition

ATLANTA -- Traditional art instruction, even in the Impressionist style, taught that a nude figure study or sketch was the first step in the development of a painting. These studies, in pencil, chalk or charcoal, allowed the artist to accurately represent the human form in size, shape and volume before painting.

In a reverse of that traditional process, these portraits of Ginger began as conventional color photographs. Through creative digital de-evolution they were reduced to sketches of the original figure and form.

"These portraits, even though they are basic black-and-white images, reflect the powerful character and style of the model," Allio said. "In many ways, these figure studies are stronger than the original photographs."

Ginger Lewis is a professional nude figure model. She works in Macon, Georgia, where she resides with her husband and two children.

Allio was born in the Commonwealth of Virginia, USA. He is a graduate of the University of Virginia with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Communications and Visual Arts. His nude fine artworks have been exhibited worldwide.
