painting of woman by Payne
painting of woman by P  
We just purchased an original (?watercolor)painting (with frame) from a local consignment shop. The picture is a nude woman from back. I've attached photo.  The artist is Payne, signed on bottom right of painting. Any help with information about this artist and if there is demand for his/her work?

Dear John,

I hope you are doing well. Your lovely nude is a print after a drawing watercolor by English artist Samantha Payne. She is a contemporary artist who released a series of nude prints titled "Through the Eyes of Eden". Your print is version IV. It appears it has been released as an open edition print, which means there is no limit set on the amount that can be printed. I will give you a link to an online store that carries them for you to look at and get a value.

If you like the artist's work, you can see more online. I hope this is helpful.

Best regards,

Fine Art
