Number two (in a series of four) this one was resorting to charcoal, with a smudge of mauve pastel [on her blushing cheeks] that was still on my fingers from the previous drawing:

Charcoal pencil on paper, 59x43cm.

I start at the head (of course) and just let the lines fall down the page like a cascade till I reach her stripey stockings, then there is now where else to go but off the page and up my own arm like a sailors tattoo :o)

Hilarious, up your arm, over your head - I love that idea. Anyway, love this drawing. It reminds me of Egon Schiele, Schiele, Scheile just flowing from top to bottom. Beautiful.

Thanks Sheila!
My first inspiration for drawing was the undulating lines of Pablo Picasso's "The Dancers" illustrated in my first art book "Primer of Drawing", given to me by my mother when I was 10yrs.
It wasn't until 1976 that I first found ES and undoubtably his drawings, and those of Klimt, made a huge impact on me. I draw the way I draw but I know Egon is looking over my shoulder!
