Artist's description:

I had a go at aquatint (a form of etching) 18 months ago. I loved the scratchy effect that could be achieved by scratching into the metal. Life has got in the way of me getting back to the print studio. I was therefore delighted to be able to capture the effect of a diffused line using a hard conte pastel on a 90g/m2 off-white paper.

This drawing captures the model sitting scrunched a little. head down. fragile. The size given is the paper size as it's difficult to measure an irregular image!

The drawing will be loosely rolled in a tube for posting.

Going to open sessions with a life model is great to improve observation skills. This helps me to paint my larger works with a good understanding of how the bones and muscles work together in various more energetic positions.

NB the colour of the picture may be slightly different on your monitor/phone depending on settings.
