Nude painting#1388 Original painting by Gretchen Kelly

$125.00

15"x22" watercolor, gouache, pastel + graphite on aubergine paper

I like working from the model as opposed to photographs. There is an energy that transpires during these live sessions that is visceral, alive and unique. I have been painting gestural poses from the nude female form for many many years. I offer these originals here on my Etsy shop. I try to capture the beauty and ease of the female form. I work with swift strokes and make order out of chaos. Simplicity is the mark I strive for.

*Note: thumbnail shows SAMPLE framed set of 4 to give you an idea of the painting when it is framed and grouped with others. This is not for sale with frame nor as a set of 4.


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.

Additional

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.
