Nude Sitting with Arms Raised, Her Hands Behind Her Head, After Moore, a fine art sitting female nude life figure study watercolor painting

Watercolor

Female nude figure

Watercolors on white watercolor paper

December 1991

Dimensions: paper 7 inches (17.7 cm) high by 5 inches (12.8 cm) wide; image about 5 inches (about 12.8 cm) high by about 3 inches (about 7.8 cm) wide

My first figure watercolor -- done lightly and spontaneously, for fun, as a study and an exercise. And then filed away, only rediscovered in 2007. Lovingly adapted from the 1800s painting Myrtle, by one of my favorite Victorian artists, Albert Joseph Moore. I liked the figure better as a simple nude, without all the drapery, furniture, and background wallpaper (though Moore rendered each of those wonderfully, as he always did). With my hand-written pencil notes to left of figure, "Dec30, 1991 / After 'Myrtle' / by Albert Joseph Moore"
