A Model Sister

I wrote in my previous post about drawing my sister.

Since then I've had the chance to spend another session with her.

She makes a great model, and was prepared to take up poses which were interesting for me.

Unfortunately such poses are usually the most difficult and uncomfortable for the model.

For example, a slight twist in the torso - or a shift of weight to one side - can cause cramps and aches in a very short time indeed.

So, for Polly, these poses must have felt like they went on for a long time - whereas I was working with a sense of sympathy and urgency.

I'm really pleased with them and hope to do more, including some charcoal studies, and possibly some ink and watercolour.

again, your use of vivid colour brings the whole work to life!
