Life drawing: the King.

The King. Acrylic, pencils and pastels on paper. About 4 hours, 1 and a half with the models, the rest spread over the week in 1o minute bursts.
The challenge was to create a new world around the model, not just the life drawing room. Perspective grids, old sketches and my imagination were thrown into this work. I’m not sure the painting has a message… maybe I’ll find out later.
The eagle was and it’s colouring has something to do with His Dark Materials and an earlier work about swans being angels in a Dante-like heaven, which I painted around 15 years ago. There’s a bits of Giotto and Max Beckmann in there as well.

Some details of the final work.

Some of the sketches and influences around the work. The horse made it look to much like Lord of the Rings…

3x man. Pencil and acrylic on paper. 3 15 minute poses with the acrylic added at home using colour from the main work.

Some details from the work.
