Life drawings 05/10/20

Life drawings 5/10/20. Still trying to let go of representation and local colour, so tried to keep in mind Matisse’s Blue Nude as well as Picasso’s maximum, ‘If you don’t have red, use blue’. Acrylic, acrylic, pastels, ink & charcoal all on A1 paper (81x59cm)

Richard and Ruth Maquette II

Here’s the second figure inspired by a duo pose from @richard_ruth_art as well as the catalogue from the recent Picasso and Paper exhibition at the @royalacademyarts. This figure was really tricky and took several attempts, but still doesn’t feel quite as ‘resolved’ as the first one. (Frosted polypropylene 15cm x 23cm). Video of full duo pose to follow.

Richard and Ruth Maquette I

Maquette for a sculpture (frosted polypropylene 21cm x 15cm). Inspired by a pose from @richard_ruth_art as well as the fantastic catalogue from the recent Picasso and Paper exhibition at the @royalacademyarts. Needs to be life size and constructed in sheet metal. Time to break out my arc welder!
