Self Portrait with Katy

I love chalk... This is a pretty large (50 x 70 cms) pastel drawing I made a couple of weeks ago with a very slight model called Katy who, it seemed to me, was being somewhat overpowered by the whole, rather theatrical, set where she lay. I was sharing her with a small group of artists who meet every Friday in Rijswijk, a leafy but featureless suburb of The Hague, Netherlands, where the space, in an unused office building, is vast and bathed in light, hence a slightly bleached-out look to the work. I am again seen reflected, concentrating .. rather a cheerful piece by my standards! I am not sure if it is finished....
