sizing people up

One of the things I've learned from life drawing is that the model's beauty is only partly expressed by their physicality. I can recall having a model who was large, and while not externally unpleasant, clearly had personal issues - and these showed in her body language. It was evident that she loathed herself.

In the case of this model, she was clearly more than content with herself, and drawing her was good fun. Ink and aquarelle on paper
