The model is "Ivory Flame", one of the most sought after art nude models in the UK, and an absolute delight to work with. We wanted to create something soft, gentle and sensuous and we found that the natural curve of the feather somehow enhanced the natural curves of her body. Once we were happy with the pose we could concentrate on angling the feather to capture the light. Quite tricky, in fact, but once we achieved it the contrast between the feather and her skin tones really brought the picture to life.
