Sea Bathers, Naples.
An amalgam of the previous sketches, this could well be worked up into a painting. It made all those life drawing classes make sense in the real world. All body shapes out for sunbathing and swimming fun on boats. The idea of making this image came from glancing at the friends doing their hair. Made near the bay Castle.
Details of the small drawing. Below are the sketches the drawings came from. Made from both sides of the bridge to the castle.
Here’s another version with the sizes of the figures moved about and colour added. Not are about this. Like a toy theatre.
A quick drawing of the Carravaggio at a great gallery in Naples.
