Whether painting representational or abstract images, John Fox always drew from the model. The leaning figure contrasts with the slanted chair back while the line of her arm and shoulders parallels the rungs of the chair. Watercolour was a favourite medium because it's difficult to control, but Fox's dynamic tones of green and ochre prove his mastery of his materials.
