Nude, back view,fresco May 2005 Photo later
Painted in California, from life, originally in water-colours. The board gave me problems after it was finished as I had mistakenly plastered straight on to it and the fresco separated from the board, but I poured Elmers glue(USA)between the plaster layer and the board, and it worked. The colours were a gift from a friend who knew her pigments and her excellent supplier. I have since learned the importance of the construction of the frame, the backing, extended metal lath, tar paper lining etc, and my next fresco was on a stable backing. Photo later.
