Nude #651- original watercolor gesture nude by Gretchen Kelly

9" x 12" watercolor + gouache on paper

Often the best paintings of nudes are poses from the back. I always love them. I have many that I have done over the years of the same models over + over and they never are the same and I never tire of them.

SOLD to a collector in Maryland

Just gorgeous Gretchen! The "simplicity" of the pice makes it so powerful and interesting!

Wow's beautiful and powerful! I love your use of transparent greens and warm sienna on the vibrant green paper. Dynamic.
