Last Friday was a real test. I wasn’t happy with the way the session was going, the pub at lunchtime had dulled me and the lack of concentration was translated on the page.
For the last pose of the night 3 pieces of paper were stuck on the wall. The model was in a position to see as the drawing progressed. The work seemed to make itself, it felt like swimming, natural movements. My hands were a mess of colour afterwards. It felt like a real breakthrough.
So, from top: The final image photographed at home. The final pose photogrpahed in situ – you can see marks continue on the wall. The other work, some were photographed really badly hence the colour.
