This is a model who is very familiar to the art school circuit here in Southern Cal. She is a full-bodied woman as you can see. I love to draw her, and believe that she is far more interesting than these bean poles models without a single dimple, who often show up on our stages. I’m sorry, but perfect is not interesting. Our large woman seems to know that she has a particular beauty about her. She has an abundance of confidence, and does not refrain from striking a single pose. (Aside from form, we also understand anatomy completely, thanks to her sessions.) And strike poses she does. Some models wait for you to lift their starving little arms and drape them across the back of the couch. But not our full-bodied model. She takes initiative and moves, twists, and bends like the consummate pro. One feels great intimacy at the end of a session with her. She certainly has a way of weeding out the immature male imposters in the room. She is only for the serious student.
I wish I had one ounce of her courage.
