Oui, Etienne has been away from home every Tuesday since who knows when. Today he was home and could go, so he went. Et voila, instead of something he wishes to destroy before anyone can see (which is what he expected after so long an absence), there are some drawings that (as Etienne says), "bear a second look." These are the last three in the pad, and took 25 minutes each. Etienne reports that the model, with the nom charmant of Angel, lost all feeling in her left hand during this pose, but she bravely endured à la fin. Earlier drawings in his pad (oui, I "peeked") show poses tres jolie and tres active - Angel is a dancer and it is obvious from her posture and the way she lives to her toes and fingers.
Moi, what would I do with fingers and toes gracieux? Learn to fly, perhaps?
These last poses are more relaxed, because they are longer.
Etienne said he struggled valiantly with the watercolors in the beginning, but then surrendered to tempation and embraced a pencil. Rouge seemed to suit the coquette of one of Angel's poses (non, he is not pleased enough with that sketch - quel dommage), and he remained with rouge for the rest of the evening.
This last drawing is about the hands and shoulders, non? (Shoulders en Grenouille? Pas vraiment.)
