'Untitled - reclining nude' by Brenda Cook

This is from life. I did it a few years ago at Spike Island and it took a few weeks. It was hard to draw someone from the side. She did lots of different poses and we had to really concentrate. I learnt a lot. Nobody laughed or made fun of her having no clothes - they were too busy painting. I never thought I’d be able to do it without laughing, but I had my mind set on the art. It was good of her to let us do it.
