“My interest in the nude, draped and dimly lit, was born out of my special interest in Italian painting,” says French artist Nathalie Picoulet of her pastel painting interests. “Especially Leonardo da Vinci. More than any course I followed, the examination of the works of the Italian masters showed me the way and left me without a doubt about what I wanted to paint. I’ve been working on the female form for many years now.”
