"Alert, turning to face whatever is in front of her."
I prepared the gorgeous rough hand-made paper with an ink wash and used it to capture this lovely mature model, her face and body full of character and life experience.
I draw from life weekly at Swansea Print Workshop, working with professional artists and models. This underpins my artistic practice and inspires me to develop the images into other genres - printmaking, mixed media, painting and intuitive drawing. Models do it for all sorts of reasons, but they all have one thing in common, they love art and engage with art by inspiring artists.
