This is Alan sermonizing, expostulating as an evangelist. He held this pose for at least a full 15 minutes without blinking. I asked him how he did it. He said he didn't know. It occurs to me therefore that Alan is a saint. Of course, Alan also draws and appreciates the dynamics of a gesture.

Vivian is also a saint. She is taking note of what Alan has to say but prefers to reflect on her own inner conception of salvation. She is also a voluptuary which makes her exquisite to draw.
