Model with artist reflected in mirror.

pastel on paper
50 x 65 cm
sketched - mon. 12 nov 2007

Seems like this subject has become my latest series. The weather being what it is, there isn't much inspiration to go outdoor painting. With a great model, such as the one represented in this delicate pastel drawing, who wouldn't choose to work at the easel, in the comfort of a warm, well let studio. In the forground lies the model, in a lovely flowing gesture. Directly behind her, the composition is made up of mainly reflected scenery. The sofa, parts of the model, windows, and the artist at the easel, all taking place in the same space as you, the viewer are made to occupy, whilst visually taking in this quaint scene.

Bye for now.

You made the studio look like a cool shady mediterranean villa with those shutters and arched windows.. as for the model her breasts look like cream cakes.. and the pose alluring.
