Sari Silk and 40's Glamour

The origins of the word "glamour" are magical in nature, and this month's "Draw!" session at Lowe Mill fit the bill. Our model, lithe, red-haired, and sporting subtle "cat eye" make-up, first seemed as monumental as a stone deity in a blue sari [above], then lounged on stage in a vintage black dress, gloves, and hat with the elegance of a Hollywood icon [below]. I found that rendering the sari without color took away from its visual impact, but the second pose and outfit seemed particularly well-suited to the sort of textured pencil work I enjoy most.
