Gesture sketches in watercolor by Gretchen Kelly

One minute poses CXVII.1,2,3,4 
I tried a new technique by painting grounds of watercolor ombre and letting them dry.
When at the live model session, I painted the gesture with bleach and then added minimal 
amount of black for hair and graphite for marks. 
The marks were definitely needed because the bleach did not work on all colors 
and it was hard to see clear bleach as I applied it. Slowly it whitened taking form and
sometimes it looked good and sometimes and sometimes not. 
Only the good ones appear below.
