Olympia – 22-03-19

Before last Tuesday’s model session I thought of a great pose I instructed to my model. It showed great triangular forms while her body would form one big triangular set off against the horizontal and vertical boundaries. I often offer her a drink she refuses politely (wants to model rather than drink) and that is how I got the theme of her being lady Olympia and me as her humble servant that cannot serve, only portray.
