British figurative art. Pauline was one of my favourite models at Heatherleys. Pauline had beautiful bone structure and a friendly personality and the whole class enjoyed the experience of taking it in turns to paint her eye-to-eye.  It’s a very intimate process, sitting close to your subject, artist looking intently at the model’s face and the model returning the gaze.  The yellow ribbon was a joy to paint too - framing her face.  Only at the end of our first session with her did she astonish us by pulling of what turned out to be a wig exposing her close cropped afro hair!  In later sessions we therefore had the joy of painting her with neck and head shape fully exposed.
