As previously noted in my first collection of drawings of older female models, there are not so may of them around in comparison to younger women. Despite that, I have drawn a fair few over the forty-plus years I have been life drawing, and consequently, have enough successful ones to make up at least a couple more collections.

I find the poise and confidence of an older model to be somewhat calming, and this often translates into a slightly looser style of drawing where I do not feel under pressure to reproduce as flawless a complexion or toned musculature of a younger model. (I generalise of course, I have drawn many fifty-plus women who have both flawless complexions and toned bodies, but you get my drift). Nevertheless, I always feel in good hands with an experienced model and react accordingly.
