Life drawing. The character actor at rest.

The character actor at rest. Acrylics and Chinagraph on watercolour paper. Around A3.
Such a pleasure drawing Robin. This session was loosely based on some of Francis Bacon’s set ups; I couldn’t seem to come up with anything quite as dark. The palette is good and strong on this painting,

Robin facing himself. Odd how not having the real head to draw means the composition usually gets better.
The unframed version of The character actor at rest. Note the paper.
Robin as a Minator like character. Wow, that was fun.
Robin in a box. I used to do a lot of characters like this around 1987…
Robin framed. 15 minutes, frames make measuring proportion easier.

    Very unusual pose and colours, quite dramatic. Excellent .
