More often than not the male models when they
pose flat on the stage end up looking dead in my sketches. It is as if I
murdered them to achieve the affect. The female models, left to my hand, are
more likely to be perceived as eventually waking up. Maybe yesterday if “P” had
used a pillow or two for his pose, he might have lived?
The second sketch of “D” from earlier in the
week (like the others of her I have recently posted in similar poses), show what
a few pillows under a blanket can achieve. The added effort to keep her comfortable
assures she will probably wake after finishing the sketch.
Both: 12”x 9” fountain pen and chalk on toned
The sketches, paintings and sometimes the writing I post on this site express what needs to be known about me. I attempt to record on a daily basis what I observe, what I imagine, and sometimes what I dream about.
I hope you enjoy my art, and the dialogue.
