Girl on Couch (Isabel): Drawing

Girl on Couch (Isabel): Drawing. The underpainting for my most recent picture. Finished last week, one of the few paintings I really like from my time in London. I've done loads of drawings that I find compelling, but my painting has seemed to be slow and tepid. July was the month that transformed me, where focus came in the form of inspiration that I have never known.

So, in August, I landed. And, while being homeless in Bishops Strotford, my drawings took on new life. I knew that I was ready to paint again, so I put an ad on the interenet: "Pose in Return for a Painting." Isabel answered, and came to sit three times in Hendon. This drawing is from the first session.
