One Minute Pose LXXVIX.1-8- gesture sketches of nudes by Gretchen Kelly

SOLD to a collector in NY
7.5"x11" - watercolor + graphite on paper
These are one minute poses that start off the session that eventually leads to 4 25 minute poses as the class progresses. It is interesting to see the natural progression weekly of these loose gesture
sketches. Some weeks, I am particularly fluid and capturing the essence of the model poses. I like what I did this past week.
