3.5x5.5 inches. Gouache on paper.
I've been making a practice of doing quick gouache studies in my sketchbook as preparatory studies for larger studio paintings. Every once in a while I feel like I do a really good one! I have been holding off on selling these until I paint the final pieces. Now that I've painted the studio version, I'm ready to let this one go! I will be a little sad to see this one leave my sketchbook because I think it's one of my best studies from this series, but if someone falls in love with it, I will take comfort in that.
