‘Contemplation’ by Maggie Jarman



Tuesday Life Drawing with the model Frankie of the Floor Length Hair, 30 minutes pose, October 2020. Watercolour graphite on paper, 60 x 47 cm.

This session had a fairytale, dreamlike quality – Pre-Raphaelites meet Singer Sargent. This drawing was started in the class but finished from the recording; this moment of reverie did not deserve some of the errors of construction initially made. For the warm up pose for this Live Stream 56, Frankie wore a delicate, loose, white robe which cries out to be painted as a ‘companion piece’.
