Nude #357- 18"x24" watercolor, gouache, graphite + pastel on paper

This painting is from a 25 minute pose. I like the colors that appeared on the page - it usually is not something I plan when I am trying to get as much fast drawing + painting done in such a squeeze. Then when I get the painting home I consider what the background colors will be based on the nude. Teal and turquoise are appearing in my paintings a lot these days,

For price:

sweet composition. this looks real on one hand and totally abstract on the other

Thanks for stopping by- I like that you picked up on that element of abstraction because I like to let that happen in my work. It gives the viewer more to see that way.
