Spring Sketches No 2. Ink/line/endomorph
A5 size sketchbook. Calligraphy pen and a minute with the model. A satisfyingly ample one to wrap the line around. The challenge is always to create three dimensionality without recourse to shading. Especially when she is leaning over and away from my point of view. Another one tomorrow.
An ex BBC TV and radio classical music producer I retrained in fine arts in Brussels after marrying a diplomat and going to live in different countries abroad. I have two school age children and a much loved second home in France. My family and friends are very spread out so the internet is very important. Creative life is often compromised but absolutely vital. A reluctant gypsy I am alarmed to find artistic concepts are not as portable as I once thought. The universality of the human figure (my subject) is not helpful enough in the constant conflict of who I am and where I am.
