The medium is pastel and pencil on Arches prepaired paper. This drawing is from the "Active Nudes" Series. The technique of prepaired paper is used and was invented in the Renassance. Leonardo da Vinci often drew his life figures this way. It involves applying a diluted wash of watercolour on the drawing surface before starting the drawing. The title of the series conveys the contemporary themes: obsession with body weight and fitness.
