Four of a kind

A good example of Watkins working in series. Here are four paintings from the 1940’s of a dark-haired model he favored. All four are rapid and loosely worked, yet each pairing (by pose) contains one quick sketch and one more defined rendering with additional detail and volume to face and body.
