Nude Painting of One Minute Pose XC.3 - original painting by Gretchen Kelly


Only 1 available

9"x11" watercolor, gouache, pastel + graphite
This is a rendering from a 1 minute pose which is the warm-up exercise in a session with a model before going on to paint longer poses. In multi media, I like to paint the female figure in quick poses to capture the gesture and the feeling of the beauty that I see. I use swift colorful strokes and finish off with defining marks in graphite. This is painted on beige color paper. It is one in a series of 7 and it looks good as a single framed painting or in a grouping which you can see in the thumbnail. (frame is not included and this sale is for a single painting)

NOTE: inherent in the nature of this type of work there may be some finger prints, splashes + marks that are considered part of the essence of the Artwork by the Artist. These are not imperfections. These are markings of the minute in time of each particular sketch and add to the character of this genre of Art.

Please note that inherent in the nature of my work, splashes, fingerprints, blobs and paint drops may appear. This is considered part of the work, as my work is done at live model sessions and I am working quickly. These markings on the work give character and show the moment in time when the Art was made. I leave these marks for this reason and consider them important to the work.

I am grateful for your patronage and hope that you enjoy my Art.
