All these sketches were made last Sunday, in a dry, bright, poppy strewn garden.
Poppies are so vibrant, the simple shapes and intensity of colour please me. Perspective and flower drawings are interesting, how you can suggest depth with the size of different flower heads.
Water in glass. The still life on the left is drawn from life. The one on the right is drawn from the drawing. You can see the start of stylistic ticks coming through. I believe this is how hieroglyphs or highly abstracted totem poles come into being, through copying from copies. Like a form of Chinese whispers.
A in white T. The sunlight was very bright that day making the white t-shirt more sculptural than usual.
I in blue. I’m drawing a lot of three-armed people nowadays. Humans don’t stay still much.
