Model Behavior

Always talk to your model to make sure she Is comfortable, warm, and happy to hold a pose. Experienced life models will be able to suggest or modify poses that make for dynamic compositions. Look more at the model, with frequent glances, than at the paper - think of the process as tracing rather than analyzing the outline.

This is a personal, evocative study of the human form that implies familiarity with the subject - perhaps a friend or a partner. The informality of the approach is complemented by the deliberately relaxed pose and by the choice of colored pencil, which provides an intimate way of working - building up colors, forms, and tones stroke by stroke.
