Sustained pose

This is a drawing I started a long time ago and finished slowly over a period of several hours. Now I usually work on drawings for an hour or less so they fall into the category of sketches or studies.
I had a old slide of this drawing and a friend of mine scanned it which may explain why the image has a grainy quality.

Preparing to get up

Or to simply to readjust her position.

Short afternoon pose

On the 3rd floor Vasco de Gamba, we draw -- below they watch soccer, play snooker, drink expresso with or whithout schnapps  and go outside to smoke.

Longing to change position

This was a difficult seated pose, I think,  for the model to hold, who seemed periodically tentative at times because she did need to shift her weight every so often.
