Valentina

Life drawing
“La Regina”, 2019, sanguine pencil on ivory toned paper, 20″ x 16″

Drawn from life at The Moon and Nude Clapham, March 2019.

This was the first time I’d ever spent so long on one drawing from life – around an hour or so, with some additional detail work added sporadically over the days that followed (very sporadically – I would often sit and stare at the page for 30 minutes or so before committing to a small pencil mark). Yet, the drawing itself came together remarkably quickly considering how slowly I usually move on these things! Our model Valentina gave us such a bold and strong pose, she struck me as being very regal (hence the title), although in life drawing sessions she’s always remarkably approachable and friendly.

Available framed.
