Awakening, a fine art female nude life figure watercolor painting, figure highlight


Watercolor on white Canson acid-free cold-press watercolor paper

January 2003

Dimensions: paper 15 inches high by 10 inches wide; image 14-1/4 high by 9-1/4 inches wide

A watercolor adaptation of my drawing, Awakening, featuring a lone sea-nymph awakening on a flower-covered rock one morning, stretching in the warmth of a blazing sunrise, blossoming for herself.

Both the watercolor and the drawing are based on a lovely Italian-white-marble sculpture tentatively called "Dawn", at Yaddo Gardens, an artists' retreat in Sarasota Springs, New York. Yaddo Gardens is unsure of the true name of the sculpture, the identity of the sculptor, or even how the sculpture got there; probably put up in 1899 or 1900, the sculpture probably came from Milan -- it is mysteriously inscribed only "DB/Milano".
