Rise up!


This is such a large piece that I found I had to draw with big sweeping arm movements and quite fast to capture the figure in the few minutes I had. (Figure reaching upwards: charcoal on brown paper, 120 x 50; 2006) I was inspired by a huge studio space that was fairly new to me and propelled me into working in this way. The ghost of the previous drawing is helping an illusion of movement although the model was standing still .. or as still as she possibly could.
