The exotic glamour
Because I’m teaching a class during this demo, I have no time to fuss around with detail, and so I pay the model some extra cash for a few reference photos during the next break, which also became an impromptu photography lesson for the class. Once the class finishes I carry on drawing, adding more elements of style such as the oriental tattoo. If you look in the background of the reference photo you can see the clutter of a painter’s studio. My iPad is also hanging from my drawing board by parcel tape and bulldog clips. Ah, the glamour of it all.
