A Fine Day In The Garden With A Fine FinishThursday, April 11, 2013
I cleaned up late afternoon and especially made sure my fingernails were very clean. I prepared a tea tray and set up my portable studio. I opened the door to the very lovely and very English Elizabeth Isles, a figure model who has just arrived in Vancouver. She will be part of my red shawl series. I explained that in some way I wanted the pose to reflect what she loves to do which is to patiently and unmovingly pose for painters and photographers. Her idea was superb and in the Fujichrome colour transparencies we arranged it so that the finger of one hand was touching the other.
Here she is in a scan of a 3200 IS0 Fuji b+w instant print. Those who read this blog will have to be patient, as I will for Elizabeth to write her essay before I post her red shawl portrait.
