12.5x14.5" gouache + graphite on kraft paper
This original painting of a sequence of one minute poses is one of two during a warm up session before painting longer poses. 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 since I was in high school. 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.
See sample of 2 framed together to give you an idea. Painting is sold without frame.
