Sally, Full Size. Pencil on paper. 66cm x 56cm, framed. For sale.
The preparatory drawing for the painting Sally in Sunlight. Sally was an Australian model. Because it was a working drawing, there was a great freedom to not get too precious about things. Again, the central aim was to understand the model in her occupied space, so every inch of the image is important. As usual, the marks in the space and those I used to build up the image help to define Sally and her environment. As my perception of the view kept changing, there is a very robust application of pencil and use of putty rubber. Because of this, there are some parts of the paper that are almost worn away.
