57 cm x 38 cm, conté on brown paper.
Date produced: While living at West Beach, before my first exhibition (1982-1983).
Drawn directly from a model, within a single 2-hour session.
Once a week, Id go to a studio in North Adelaide to join a group of artists who would all contribute to hiring a model for a three-hour session. The models were often asked to provide a range of quick poses and then some longer lasting ones. This model was set up in a sitting pose, that she was asked to maintain over the course of the remaining two hours of the afternoons session. After doing some quick sketches of different aspects of her pose, I chose to concentrate on trying to describe the 3-dimensional structure of her shoulder, as I saw and experienced it. I was very happy with the result.
