Detail of the figure painting “Sylvan Idyll” by Patricia Watwood

Contemporary artist and figure painter Patricia Watwood has new work on view at Dacia Gallery (New York) during a holiday show that’s open through January 5, 2020.

“This new painting is based on the work I created this summer, when I hosted artists to paint the figure en plein air in Pennsylvania,” Watwood says, adding, “Did you know that ‘sylvan’ in that word means ‘consisting of or associated with woods?’”

About the painting, Watwood tells us, “Our model, Evyenia, posed outdoors, right on that rough tree bark, and inspired the whole group with an idyllic image of the nude in harmony with nature. I created this work in the studio from the life studies.”
