Nude #147 - 7"x10" - watercolor, graphite & gold leaf on paper

Sunshine is cast by the gold leaf. I am now thinking in advance about gold leaf instead of white which is traditionally the lightest color that one does not paint in a watercolor and thus one must have forethought about where that omission of painting will be. It is always a surprise at the end of a work to see that intention- the omission of color.
