It was time for the last pose of the night.
The room was full of tension.
The tutor, John Close, wanted me to sit down and use a biro. So selecting a knackered paint spattered donkey that’s just what I did. The class was about proportion and for various reasons I was lacking in this on Friday night. Sitting down, having a piece of paper half the normal size and using only a thin mark making tool helped get the relations right. I was told to make small connections rather than make quicker, wider marks.
See what you think.
It took my work somewhere more academic than usual, with the biro adding a bit of modern life. The last pose of the night. 1 hour.
Here’s the earlier work made with Japanese ink and chalk.
All 15 minute poses.
Not bad, but I have many works like this. Time to try a different approach.
