Title: Study of Stephanie Seated
Size: 24 x 18 inches
Medium: Charcoal on paper
The models that pose for me are my friends and very few of them have posed nude before. Most come to sit for me because they love art and want to contribute to my art and creativity. 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 home where I discovered that when a model feels secure a different kind of imagery and emotional quality can be had. Making someone feel comfortable at the studio can also have the same effect. This drawing is a quick study done from a live model.
This work of art is done on acid-free paper. The drawing is created in charcoal. The work is signed. I provide a certificate of authenticity.
