I was thinking tenderness, 19th century, boudoir atmosphere inspired by their appartment.
That was quite a staged drawing painting. I asked two friends to pose, sketched rapidly, took a couple of photographs (thank you technology, some days) for details and reference, quite a classical process really.
This is the first drawing for the main picture which is en route. I like the sort of spontaneity in this, the first draft, we’ll see which one is best.
