Painting nude models interesting

Excerpt from here

The human body truly is one of the most beautiful subjects one can possibly draw. This may be because we are all humans, and generally speaking, consider ourselves the highest form of creation. So why not celebrate that ideal?

The vanity behind the artwork itself is what makes it so beautiful. It is this self-loving aspect of our culture that we seem to thrive upon, because the glorification of the human body is the highest form of flattery we can award to ourselves.

I snap back to the moment, and I realize that I have been staring at her bare body for the past hour or so.

I probably know more details about her figure then her boyfriend does. In any other circumstance, that statement would come off as rather disturbing.

Why is that? Shouldn’t it be completely normal for one human being to study another, in order to grasp what we truly are? Why has the initial idea of nudity become so controversial? After all, this is how humans came into the world, naked.
