Comments by the artist

I painted this picture of a girl reading a book in the nude at least two years ago and I completely forgot about it. I was going through my watercolour paper and I rediscovered it! So here it is after all this time. It probably needs more work building up the tones on her body so her face doesn't look so dark. I find faces can be hard to get right so they end up a bit labored and dark. I think it's a nice relaxed pose though.
