Artwork Detail Request a print

The light and textures in this drawing are so closely observed that the circumstances of the drawing are immediate – a warm and cosy room at night when two friends are doing what they enjoy. One friend is sewing while the other (the unseen artist) is drawing her at work. (Intimate Portraits, 2005)
