Sometimes as a tutor there’s a danger to hover over peoples’ shoulders making them nervous so during the longer pose I took the time to sit down and draw. The only space left to sit was right at the end which luckily enabled me to draw her profile

Interestingly early portraits by the Renaissance artists were always profiles
