Arches CP 300 gsm, 12" x 9".
siena had done a long series of dancing poses until my camera ran out of memory. i left her to listen to blue man group while i changed memory cards, and when i came back she was resting on the studio floor. i worked with her there.
the rug is from crate and barrel (i.e., china) and sheds alot, but i vacuumed it scrupulously before the model came over. sunlight comes in from her left.
the grid makes a nice accent to her form. this is basically a color study, though i also wanted to experiment with a more schematic, "cartoon like" drawing of the figure and face.
