In this red chalk drawing the sitter has her head turned to the right and is in profile. Knighton-Hammond captures the profile in light outline for the face and goes in heavier with the chalk for the hair and blouse. The key elements – eye, nose and mouth are drawn to perfection. With delicacy and control the head is modelled with effortless ease and gracefulness capturing the inner mood and personality of the sitter.
