Drawing Attention

My model Rachel is a very striking and beautiful woman, who draws attention wherever she goes.

One challenge when drawing her therefore is to capture this sensuality, in pencil and pastel.

Drawing can be such an abstract process, and there is a great deal to think about - such as the position, proportion and structure of a figure. It is important that, in dealing with all of this, one doesn't forget about the lyricism of the line - and how this can evoke the beauty of the subject.

[Happy Christmas to all my readers. Thanks for visiting and taking the time to read, view and comment.]
