Welcome to the art of the female form

Welcome all painters of the sublime female form (no photographs nor digitally altered photos please)! This group is for all those artists who paint, draw or chalk (digitally or with traditional media) the female body - from portraits to artistic nudes that celebrate the beauty of woman.

:bulletblue: So as not to flood people's accounts with hundreds of images, I limit the pictures added to 10-20 a day (with new contributions added to the queue). Please be patient and try to restrict your uploads to 1 image a day, and please... no porn

There is a tremendous amount of excellent art in dA which celebrates the female figure in all states (from child to woman, innocence to seductive, beautiful or sensual). This is the group to share this wonderful art with others.

If you like what you see, please add this group to your watchlist... or better yet, join the group and upload your own work or favourites.

We all look forward to seeing your work, and please also spread the word.


If you can be found on the wonderful RedBubble site why not check out the incredible art of the female there too…


If you're a Twitter and want your tweets added to the group Tweet box below, just message me and I'll add you.


AFFILIATES (You can link with us)

:bulletred: What is an affiliate?

An affiliate is a club or a group around dA who can exchange information with other groups or clubs.

:bulletred: What does “exchange information” mean?

Per example, the #painted-ladies group is affiliated with #fineartnudes. If #painted-ladies decides to organize a contest, the affiliates can announce the contest on their blog or journal, and they can help promote it or offer prizes.

Another example would be if the group would need some help of any kind, and its affiliates would announce it and help it solve the problem.

:bulletred: How do I affiliate with your group?

All you have to do is to leave a comment, and I’ll post you on the list right away. But remember, if you chose to affiliate with the #painted-ladies group, this means that you are willing to help us when we have a problem or we need to announce something. :aww: We will surely do the same if you need our help :giggle:


Hi all those talented and faithful posters out there.

I'm back!

Some of you may well know that my health has been pretty rocky. To add to the problems, my (now ex-)wife decided that she didn't want to support nor care for an invalid. So she stopped feeding and caring for me and moved out, cutting off the gas and 'lecky.

I was in a bad way, with my health problems getting worse, and tried to kill myself... several times. The last one saw me institutionalised (so I had no access to th'web) and while under supervision, my wife took the opportunity to file for divorce. This was a total surprise.

As I had been taken straight from the hospital to the shelter, I did not have my medication for my underlying debilitating conditions. My wife was contacted and told to bring them in. She refused. She only agreed (to me) if I would sign the divorce papers saying that I would take nothing and leave her all savings, property etc. She then returned home and destroyed all my clothes and belongings she didn't want. She also took the opportunity to tell everyone we knew that I had deserted her for a younger woman (rather than be seen as someone who lived off me for the last 30+ years, only to dump me when I now had need of her help). I later discovered that she believed I would be made a ward of the court and taken into care, never to be seen again. She also told this story to my kids... it broke their hearts (and they hate me still, nearly 2 years later).

Suffice to say, as soon as the medical staff found out, they informed me that the papers were invalid as I was "not of sound mind". This really pissed off the wife... especially as the doctors released me home with daily visits. She then spent the following year doing everything she could to punish me, causing several more suicide attempts... all just so that I would cave in and give her everything.

To cut a long story short, 18 months later and I am back in the land of the living. alone, under recovery, under psychiatric care, and living in a cheap flat in Dover UK (having lost everything and everyone, and was the only thing I could afford in the UK). It is a slow and uphill struggle, but I am turning a corner I think. As such I hope to continue improving, and returned to my original endeavours.

So here I am today... taking the first of many tentative steps back into the world. First stop is catching up on this site's backlog. I can't tell you how happy I am to see that despite me being cut off from the world for nearly 2 years, you all kept the faith.

I am so grateful to you all.

PS... while under care I did learn a lot about myself. If anyone is interested you can read about it in my blog:…
