Nude #1098 + portrait - watercolor by Gretchen Kelly

12"x16" watercolor, gouache, graphite on Stonehenge paper

9"x12" watercolor

Both were painted during a 25 minute pose. 
The Stonehenge paper used above in the nude 
is so luxuriously velvet. 
I am just trying it out for the first time here on a figurative work. 
I have been using it all summer on my plein air work. 
This is entirely different when painting the nude figure.
