3 portraits of the Model - watercolor portraits by Gretchen Kelly


 All three are 11"x17" watercolor, graphite + pastel
 these portrait studies are done while the model is posing nude.
 I usually try to do them as soon as I finish the full length pose.
 It's helped to strengthen my ability with rendering facial features.
