Two minute pose series - 1,2,3,4 - original painted sketches by Gretchen Kelly

8.5"x11" each- gouache on paper

SOLD to a collector in Tulsa, OK

This is a series of poses, two minutes each pose, as a warm-up exercise to go onward painting longer poses. Often times I like the consecutive animated poses that move one into the next gracefully. It is never planned by me and that is another aspect that I like about quick figure painting.

I really like this series. Fun use of the black ink, and the lines and shapes make with the brush strokes.

Really great! I just love these!

I love the first three!!! The fourth is almost as good, but it loses ground in the sereis due to less contrasting stark black, but still a great flow and line.
