I keep thinking about Leigh Bowery's back. (see previous post) It had to be very strong to support the weight of all those costumes. He showed it off a lot and Lucien Freud painted it every last plane.
What a pair.
It brought to mind a drawing I did in a figure class at Flicker Street Studio a couple of years ago. The model's back was exquisitely wonderful to navigate. I want to make a painting based on the shape of her back.
This is a revisiting of source material because I believe I actually posted this soon after I drew it. It's been tucked away in a pile but recently I pulled out all my drawings and flipped through them. A rediscovery of a shape.
