Julia – 19-11-19

Saturday 16th November 2019 I had Julia Gómes Avilés over as a model again. I wanted to express her dancing skills by a dynamic pose in which she holds her foot and combine it with her bodily features running off paper like natural waves. Such symbolises the time lapse in a dance and a great drawing session passing by so quickly. I also tried to tackled another enemy: the ever problem of balancing out satutared and unsaturated colours. I reckon this to be the most difficult contrast next to tonality and the choice for colour schemes.
