The collaboration with Hanna continues; we spent Wednesday & Thursday on these (and some others). Working with a single professional model over an extended period is very rewarding; it allows more experimentation (and yes, more mistakes!) but at the same time is more particular. For me this is important, as we move away from the traditional notion of the figure - as pretty much a design (i.e. a flower pot would do just as well), or simple eye candy - and towards something closer to portraiture, but of the full and complete individual.
These are all 24"x36", NuPastel on Kraft paper; the poses were 10-30 minutes.
