|Pregnant Nude, oil pastel, 11" X 7", 2016|
We set up a meeting where it quickly became clear that her pregnancy was in its ninth month. In all likelihood we wouldn't have the luxury of multiple working sessions before she gave birth. All live model sessions come with built in time restraints but this one had an extra sense of urgency and finality. The above drawing is one of three attempts from our lone session. I find working with pregnant models very appealing but I think a seventh month starting date might be better for my nerves.
