Discussing her lifelong work with figure drawings, she relates the liberation she felt when she finally got past the "tyranny of the model" after 20 years. She explains her preference for working in black and white, the value of being obsessed with a project, and the importance of putting down a strong black line. She also delves into some of the technical points of her work, including running a monoprint dry to get a "ghost print," a technique she frequently uses to achieve a fresco look.
