Nude #354- watercolor, gouache, pastel, graphite, silver pigment on paper

Many of my works have a slap-the-paint on and drip'n dry look. It is intentional. It shows the strokes and movement. I like to contrast that with a more thoughtful stencil to hold it together and keep the eye occupied. The silver pigment adds permanence and brings in colors that are reflected. The whole thing in total is pretty grand for 25 minute pose. (the background is added later)

This is one of our regular models at the local Opera house where there is a figure painting session regularly. But I cannot give her name.
