I discovered that this lovely lady can sing opera, and does occasionally while modelling, after I had drawn her a couple of times. I loved drawing her, as I love drawing all people of different shapes and sizes, and I wanted to convey the beauty and grace that I see in her. The bed of roses reinforces her beauty, and she looks comfortable and relaxed in her own skin, and she is – a quality I admire in her.
