Nude Watercolours by Gary Korlin
New from Gary Korlin – A series of watercolour washes where he captures the figure in a variety of poses. These works challenge the artists to capture gesture and volume of the human figure with a deft and confidant stroke because of the unforgiving nature of the medium.
