Nude #395- 15"x16" - original watercolor by Gretchen Kelly
SOLD to a collector in Hudson, NY
15"x16" - watercolor + graphite on paper
This is from a quick 10 minute pose. In the action of doing this so quickly, at the moment I added in the snake-like shape of the wicker chair's arm, I knew this would be a special painting and that I must stop there. I did not want to go much further in defining anything in the composition, it was complete and told me so. My friend came over today to buy last night's painting and upon seeing this one she decided that she wanted this instead.
