Life drawing: Francis Bacon.

Saturday 8th September.
In a crypt in a church opposite Euston station.
A great set up of scenes based around Francis Bacon.
Around 4 hours of intense drawing.

Three Studies of ‘George Dyer’. Chalk and graphite sticks.
The model undressed as the poses went on. The first in a suit and tie, the second in string vest and the third in his white jockeys. Based on the painting of Bacon made from photographs of George Dyer by John Deakin.

Three Studies of movement. Oils stick, chalk, crayon, charcoal and lots of pencils.
A really interesting time with lots of overlaying. With the model, music, scenery and the amazing space of the crypt.

Two studies of man in stocking. Oils stick, chalk, crayon, charcoal and lots of pencils.
The first works. The place was rather dark which made looking at the paper a waste of time. The works became more about tone and texture which suited me.
