Nude #95 - 10.5"x 10.5" watercolor on paper




This is one of my favorite nudes. I like the texture of the paper and the control and lack of control in the painting. I am infatuated with the watercolor medium for that characteristic- I can't always control it. There are fun surprises and beauty that is born from its properties. I don't adhere to the NO WHITE rule anymore. I practiced that in the past and have proven my skill with it. Now I like to have fun with China white - it has a nature of its own when thrown into the mix.
