Sketch of woman standing for swirly painting by John EnterekinThis sketch was done from life as my model walked around the studio.It wasn't posed for as such, just an idea that evolved from watching her and listening to her talk.

I hope to refine it some soon and then do a color sketch before moving it to a canvas.

This is one of what I call my "swirly" images. I enjoy the abstraction of the figure but without losing the face or general appearance and then creating swirling lines and shapes around her. These shapes along with the colors define my feelings or the feelings she was projecting when the sketch was made.
