I feel in many ways that I've never topped this drawing. It is not in the technique, the face or the body, just the proportion and movement of the shapes. It just sets my soul right. It's almost life-size.
This model is so cool. She's a fifty-year-old high school math teacher, and I just think it's so rad that she's modeling for us. Just think of the courage. I usually do a three-graces interpretation thing with my figure drawing students each semester, and I loved this one.
I love the way this figure appears to have been thrown or pasted against a wall- wham! I like the feeling of speed about it. People keep trying to inform me that the breasts would not respond to gravity this way, but this is a faithful representation of the scenario and the model.
