38 cm x 57 cm, conté on brown paper.
Date produced: While living at West Beach, before my first exhibition (1982-1983).
Drawn directly from a model. At the time, I was going to a studio in North Adelaide once a week to draw nude figures, and once a week to specifically draw portraits of models. The models were organised by a senior member of the group. All the artists who attended (usually about 8 to 12 people) would all contribute to the cost of hiring the models. There was a good variety of faces to try to capture, and I enjoyed the challenge of getting good likenesses of the models.
