The last and smudgiest of these monoprints. I think this was a very fast one. It is always interesting afterwards to find what I chose and notated from the scene in front of me. In this one the model becomes integrated with the foliage and objects behind her, and, as she leans towards me I just have time to note the back of her hand and the corrugated knuckles before the line falls away with the curve of her lower leg... and time's up.
An ex BBC TV and radio classical music producer I retrained in fine arts in Brussels after marrying a diplomat and going to live in different countries abroad. I have two school age children and a much loved second home in France. My family and friends are very spread out so the internet is very important. Creative life is often compromised but absolutely vital. A reluctant gypsy I am alarmed to find artistic concepts are not as portable as I once thought. The universality of the human figure (my subject) is not helpful enough in the constant conflict of who I am and where I am.
