Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I have drawn and painted this model, Helen, since my student days in 1990...... To my eyes she has the most beautiful back and can sit, with grace, hour upon hour.... She is my favorite model to book for the life drawing classes I tutor in Barnsley every week. Over the years we have become firm friends, well, after nearly 25 years of drawing and painting her, we must have swapped anecdotes and stories ad-infinitum!

I have used a dark charcoal grey pastel paper and picked out the highlights to describe the form. Initially intended as a pure coloured pencil piece, I decided to widen the contrast and add a subtle layer of white acrylic paint that lifts the form further and creates more depth...

Materials used:

white coloured pencil, white acrylic paint
