  • Best viewed large
    Having worked with the same model for over a long period of years, I have recorded notable lifetime experiences such as before, during, and after childbirth. In this particular life session, I was delighted and inspired to capture her totally new hair cut adorning multi-coloured highlight streaks!
    For this work I used one of my gesso prepared textured background rag papers.
    Through the process of life drawing I am always inspired by
  • a) the challenge to observe and creatively capture a different pose and figure composition using various art mediums
  • b) importantly, having to work on one’s own awareness, of being in the moment – of recognizing, reading and perceiving present visible and invisible energies at play – in myself, the model and the progressive work.
  • c) recalling and drawing from past learning experiences
  • d) having the opportunity to further artistically develop and build onto my own repertoire.
