How Far Will You Go?

in art •  11 months ago

In my more recent figurative works, I have started suggesting more of a background, an environment, a setting to place the figures so that the composition lends itself more to letting the observer find a story.

The original reference photo was a simple studio shot, but the pose lent itself to the idea of the model tentatively slipping into the water. You know how it goes, the mind says, yes!, go for a swim, but the body, mmm... that's a bit cool for me. But, the best solution is of course always, just to jump straight in and get the shock of the cold over with.

But that's just my opinion. How do you deal with getting into the cold water?

coldness is a desire, compared to heat. but we can stand from the cold first our body's blood at least 110. strong in the face of cold. "experience" I had several times done swimming in his early cold water pool my body could not stand the cold. but continuously I continue it still can not afford, it turns out my body again less blood maybe than that why the body quickly vibrate with cold ...? best regards from @aemkar. happy to be one as your friend @leoplaw

Have you heard of the "Iceman", Wim Hof?

Wim Hof (born 20 April 1959) is a Dutch daredevil[1], commonly nicknamed "The Iceman" for his ability to withstand extreme cold,[2] which he attributes to exposure to cold, meditation and breathing techniques (similar to the Tibetan technique Tummo).[3]
