Day With "MA"





Day with “MA”
I was at a life drawing session with “MA” today. I have drawn her often, sometimes referring to her as “The Queen”, or “Yesterday Queen” when I post her on my blog.
She played the role again today.
Both: 12”x 16” pastel pencil on grey toned pastel paper

  3. I, too, was touched by the apparent sadness in her eyes.
    I do hope it was only for the pose.
    She is so beautiful...a beauty that only maturity can bring permeates her entire being, and you have captured it's essence perfectly in these two sketches.
    An absolute masterpiece!:)

    1. “MA” has lived, I think an exciting and long life as a model. There is a history that shows in her poses. I’m sure some are sad, maybe more now, as they are memories of times that can’t be relived.
      Thank you
