Ink and graphite pencil on paper
This work is a study of an old photograph. The subject is a high school friend posing during the photoshoot. It still strikes me how beautiful she looked dressed in white and pink and how the gentleness of her appearance blended with the tall grasses surrounding her. I have found myself going back to this particular photo time and time again over the course of the past couple of years, inevitably I would end up honoring it through this sketch. Even though you can’t see her face, there’s nonchalance and crystal clear freedom communicated through her body language. A very vivid image of a little ballet dancer twirling on the moon comes forward in my mind when looking at this picture.
