Nude #595- original fresco nude by Gretchen Kelly

8.5" x 11" fresco w/gouache, graphite + gold pigment on paper
This is another new technique for me working with a fresco surface. It is a bit brittle and needs to be handled carefully when it dries. I like the antique quality of the color and texture. The figure drawing is a one minute pose and I added the color after.
