Nude #342

19"x25" - watercolor, gouache, pastel, graphite on paper
Sometimes the stencil backgrounds create a needed element to the composition. Not only does it add to the painting, it diverts attention away from some aspects that are not perfected. As always I love the contrast of the quick lines and brush strokes in the figure contrasted with the organization and regularity of the repeated wallpaper pattern in the background.
