Nude #163 - watercolor, gouache, pastel & graphite on paper

The subtitle for this piece is "Dreaming of Tangiers" I referred to a drawing by Matisse from 1918, of a sketchy landscape. I sketched it into the background which this painting was calling for. Her gaze suggests slow, lush, hot, tranquility of another time and place.
