The last but one time I saw her, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her. I wanted her flat on her back with her legs in the air.
She complied, and naturally put her hand between her legs as she closed her eyes and smiled…….
And that was the pose I drew 🙂
But, somehow it didn’t work. I think it was because I’d decided to work in natural light and it faded as I drew, so the lighting wasn’t definite, but too defused. The picture was……………….ok. Not good, but ………..ok.
This time when I saw her, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her. I wanted her flat on her back with her legs in the air.
And I’d try it again. But this time with better fixed artificial lighting. And I’d get it right this time.
So, that is what we did. And I was perfectly happy with that idea. Until I walked past her to get to the power socket to plug the light in.
As I turned, and saw her lying there, with the light on her. I knew I’d made a huge mistake. HUGE!
The pose was far far far better from the other side!!!!!!
So, I set up my easel on the other side of her, and drew her from there.
And here’s the picture. Far far better than the first (which I’ve now ripped up and thrown away!). The picture is simple, and yet effective. Its got some lovely lines in it, and just the basic light catching her womanly body, lighting her breasts, stomach, face and limbs. Its called “Beautiful dreams” and as you look at it, you think its of a woman lying sleeping. Until you find her right hand. And then you smile as you realise what she’s doing! LOL
