Versions of Alone




Solitude on a Page




Invisible


Sketches from the last few days from warm-up poses of “E” and “R”.
“E” had solitude for a day, before “R” filled the void space. Together they seem invisible, each alone, ignored.

  1. Bonjour cher Anthony,

    Je trouve fascinant le premier croquis avec votre modèle occupant le côté de votre feuille. La partie blanche interpelle le regard et l'imagination. J'aime énormément.
    L'entrée en scène des deux personnages peut traduire les pensées de votre modèle...
    Gros bisous ♡

    1. I hesitated too liking the image of “E” from behind controlling the whole page. But I gave in the next day have so much of the page empty when I started doing sketches of “R”.
      Yes there is that sense though with all of the story being implied.
      Thank you for the kiss..

  2. I'd say: she is a former dancer...now, she's thinking about past and this left foot/ open leg follow her thoughts, I guess...the way we sometimes do when thinking, haven't you noticed ever? ~ then very interesting to put them together....they also looking down toward their/and her? steps...thinking about life maybe....~ very interesting sketch here...many ideas for story....

    1. She (“E”) was/is in fact a dancer. She often poses dressed in he belly dancing costume these days.. And yes, a story is waiting to be told between the nude dancer and these old men…

    1. Yes she is alone, even with the others added on the page as company, she remained somehow, very alone..
      Thank you

  4. Oh such a sense of sadness and isolation...to be that alone - even in company - is so tragic.
    She is living in a world of her own, one that no one else is permitted to share.
    I am willing her to turn to the two "R's" and engage in light conversation. No one should be that alone...
    A wonderfully expressive sketch, Anthony.
    Brilliant! :)

    1. With your story for her, the loneliness can be tolerated. There is now drama, a beginning and an end, with the solution to her loneliness now within reach.
      Thank you
