Gaye Britt, 2019, pencil, 52.25 x 41 cm
It's not often that you get to draw someone with closed eyes, but it's a great subject to do. For me it's like Gaye has removed herself from the world and dwells in a region unknown to others.
I thought about how I would draw Gaye sometime before the sitting but when she arrived she suggested she could listen to music and I thought it was a great idea. Sometimes the sitter can make a suggestion that gives a drawing a different and refreshing perspective.
