Shibari II


It’s Japanese, it’s centuries old, it’s a 5 minutes pose… Yes it’s challenging.

The quick sketches have that flavour of emergency which fits her moment so well (at least IMHO).

Very quick underlying graphite, ink pen and watercolor.

I’m a bad photographer, the paper is really white and not blue…


The first of preliminary sketches for a wider format.

It’s a quick graphite sketch with washes of ink (unforgiving material…)

I liked the way the light bounces on her belly, it’s always about the light and the story it tells…
