Thanks for the advice!

How did you ask her to model for you?

I know some local dance classes; but mostly they're for school students, and it's very difficult to ask younger people to model nowadays. I assume she sits for you alone and not in a class of several?

Most of my models are hired for experience by the School of Art.. I need more than photo references for variety :S

I love this one,especially the roughness but still keeping the softness and delicacyof the face features.As for the pain...I know what you're talking about,I have chronic shoulder pain from years of drawing,every drawing I do it burns for days!Luckly painting doesn't!

perhaps you are more tense when drawing - I get really tense when drawing and the ancient back suffers - we must suffer for our arts!
glad you like the drawing - I did not enjoy it till the final moments!
