The Balance

The Balance – a preview for Sinful Sunday

So this is a portrait and it is at that critical moment. I know it’s not finished, there are bits that are making me shudder and bits that make me feel joy, but this is the moment where I could so easily overdo things. I could completely ruin hours of work with one brush stroke. And like all portraits, I want it to be absolutely perfect for my beautiful model. I chose this photo because the brush looks like it’s balancing on her back – and it to me, in this moment, it really is…

Can anyone tell who this is?

I’m hosting a workshop at this year’s Eroticon Live – we’ll be doing some life drawing and writing inspired by the experience – why not come along! It’s a wonderful weekend of erotic writing fun and education – check out details:

Lick the luscious lips for more Sunday Sinners…
