‘Daryl’ by Caroline Partridge



Pen & oil pastels on paper, 29.5 cm x 42 cm

Work produced at Saturday Portrait class with Daryl

I decided to detach from control and judgement and ‘drew blind’ – that is I kept my eyes on the model and let my hand move across the paper without looking at it, & I committed to every mark by drawing in pen. I looked at the drawing to add colour.

I felt so connected to the model Daryl, who has an incredible face and presence.

This class was a revelation in connection and in freedom for me.
