This one I made in Tokyo at a session with a group of artist friend, when Sophie my friend and Muse arrived to Japan to help me with my exhibition in Tokyo. We arranged an evening for her to model for us. That evening we let the Women artists that happened to be both Japanese to decide on the long pose.
I made a few drawing of Sophe in that position. From which I think this is most successful and has some elements of Zen.
By the way these are all done as part of Herx Chronicle: Far East. which contain my adventures from Europe to the Far East with works that was made over a 6- 7 month period some in Europe and others mainly in Thailand and Japan.
