This is an original drawing of a nude female model, drawn from the model at a life drawing session in Edinburgh, March 2014.

Because I had a good stretch of time with this pose (well, 50 minutes) I was able to take care to get the detail right, making the most of the limited tones that you can get with chinagraph to lay down consistent tones without letting things get overworked. The lovely thick darkness of a black chinagraph pays off nicely in this piece, producing a super contrast with the whiteness of the paper, yet still delicate and light where needed.

This is a really lovely drawing that will look divine mounted and framed - it is offered unmounted and unframed to save on shipping. The drawing has been sprayed with fixative spray to avoid any smudging during handling or in transit - chinagraph doesn't really smudge much anyway, but it's always best to be sure!

This piece has been signed and dated by the artist.

Black chinagraph on textured cartridge paper (135gsm), 58.4cm x 42cm (23" x 16.5")
