One Minute Pose 133.7 original painting of nude by Gretchen Kelly


11x15"gouache painting on paper. It is of a One Minute Pose which is a warm up exercise in the beginning of a life drawing session. It helps to loosen up the artist's hand and eye to capture the gesture of the model's pose. I paint at a life drawing session each week and this is an important execution in my artistic practice. This painting is sold unframed. The second photo is showing an idea of how this could be framed. The third photo shows a group of four which were all painted in this session and that look great hanging together. The last photo shows the whole group of 8 paintings I did on the floor of my studio. See my other listings for more of this group.

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.
