Title: Study of “A” with raised knees
Size: 22 x 30 inches
Medium: Mixed media on paper
This drawing, a study of “A” with raised knees is an intimate portrait of a close friend. We have known each other for twenty years and she is also one of my collectors. She had never posed for me before and decided that she wanted to become a muse and a part of my work.
I like to let the models choose their own poses and by doing so the imagery is different and more natural. I believe in letting my sitters be themselves. In the past I have worked in my models homes where I discovered that when a model feels secure a different kind of imagery and emotional quality can be had. This drawing is part of my ongoing intimate moments series.
The drawing is created in Liquitex Professional Ink and Winsor & Newton Watercolors on 140lb Fabriano watercolor paper. I provide a certificate of authenticity.
