In the dark space apparently between bed curtains, the light appears to catch the hip, back and shoulders of a woman lying on her side. A substantial pillow seems to be propped up to the right, but whether the strokes beyond her or arching over her from the right indicate a companion remains open to interpretation.
For a discussion of the improvisatory and often erotic nature of the watercolour studies making up most of this sketchbook, see the Introduction.
See for example Alastair Grieve (ed.), Victor Pasmore: Writings and Interviews, London 2010, pp.25, 145 note 31.
Blank, save for offsetting and very slight continuation of watercolour from folio 5 recto opposite (D28795).
