Mr. Potthast has many paintings where the figures appear in the same setting. I will have to read more about his process and how he went about posing his subjects. I wonder if, when painting from his own on site studies, he would transpose a figure from one scene to another. I believe so - that would only make sense. I'm not giving up on these pieces where the full on, naked human body offers so many challenges to an artist. At one moment it seems like a simple no brainer - the next it's a conundrum!
