Nudes #874 + #875 - watercolor nudes by Gretchen Kelly

Nude #874 - 10"x13" watercolor, pastel, gouache, graphite on paper
from a 15 minute pose
priced at $100.

Nude #875 - 10"x12" - watercolor, pastel + graphite on paper

Sometimes after I finish a longer pose I do a quick version of it again if there is time left and often, I like that quick rendering better, as in this case.

One Minute Pose LXVII.4 - nude by Gretchen Kelly

12"x12" acrylic + graphite on heavy paper
I tried using acrylic for a change to see how it moved with fast painting of gesture poses. It is slower than gouache and watercolor but not so bad. I like the brush stroke texture showing up and the heavy paper held up too.
