I use my large portfolio of life drawings which I have accumulated over the years for my paintings. There are poses of both sexes which can easily be dressed. Usually a certain drawing will inspire the start of a composition and I find my imagination will trigger off many ideas.
I belong to a group of artists who meet every week or so with a model where we have short and long studies. But that is only the start as I do like to have a narrative in my work although sometimes a story will only become obvious towards completion.
Examples shown here are very diverse in subject and can interpreted in many obscure ways.
