I did this watercolor when I took my figure drawing II class at UNT. Over the years, the magazine cut out that I did had peeled off so I experimented with painted cut outs to see how it would look. I loved the effect and then developed the cut out method further painting 'Shine' next. I realized that I hadn't done figures in a while, so this was a great starting point to polish those skills again. When I found this sketch, it was in a portfolio of 100 or so other figures. This was a very cool trip down memory lane. This piece is 30 x 40 inches.
