Nude #382- original watercolor by Gretchen Kelly

12"x16" - watercolor - $300.

Switching gears quickly from yesterday's male nude - I am starting to hire my own models. Rather than go to the local opera house that holds sessions or to another group gathering of artists in a local barn studio, I am painting in my own quarters and directing the model and the mood. I love love love the Parisian genre of bordellos, women of the night and all that Toulouse and Matisse painted. I am recreating it for myself and we'll see where I go......

I have been figure drawing for years. I cannot, no matter how much I want to, paint freely with watercolors. I love your stuff.
