The Breeze at Dawn has secrets

Graphite pencil on archival paper. 102x60cm. Artist’s collection.

This portrait is a family collaboration. Drawn from a gorgeous photograph taken by my son Ash of his beautiful partner Dani. The image inspired me to draw, particularly the shadow-play across her chest, the strands of hair lifting in the breeze, her downward gaze, and the soft-focus background. A challenging piece that taught me a lot.
