The Venus of The Hague – 18-05-20

Last session with my model was fruitful and I had a mirror in mind like I used in my drawing ‘In hoc signo – 14-10-19’. I was satisfied with the result then and I sold it very quicky. Time to emulate it but the mirror at this moment reflecting her in the evening hours just didn’t work that well so I start sketching her without. Strange how the subconsciousness works because having her pose in this position only remind me to ‘The Rokeby Venus’ by Velázquez when it was almost finished. Recaptulating the process, I must have searched for such a pose because I had my mind set on a mirrored pose. I guess drawing a cherub holding the mirror must have felt too corny.
