Nude #720 - original watercolor nude by Gretchen Kelly

































11" x 16" watercolor, pastel, graphite on paper 
Today was the first time back at the Hudson Opera House for figure painting session since last Spring. They haven't held a class all summer! Doesn't make sense that there aren't any sessions there during the summer. I guess maybe attendance in down during the summer when people go away and don't want to commit to indoor activities....anyway glad they have resumed.

Nude #713- original watercolor nude by Gretchen Kelly


































15" x 20' watercolor, gouache+ graphite on paper
From a 25 minute pose. I could have tightened up some of the edges and colors but there is something that I like about the untamed freedom of this painting and decided to leave it in all of it's first stage rendering to reveal the first impressions from my brush.

Nude # 711 - original watercolor nude by Gretche Kelly

























19" x 25" watercolor, gouache, graphite on paper

This is from a 25 minute pose. It is one of 10 done in at my regular studio session each week where the model poses for a group of us for 3 hours. This is where the bulk of my paintings stem. I do hire the models privately too for my special projects.
