Dear Cleo 17 10 14

Dearest Cleo

It was great to catch up this morning, even if it was just for a short while it was good to see you and Auburn was so loud, he is getting into a big little brother to you.

I was thinking forest with figures which was lingering from yesterday and I have been reading, well looking at the pictures really in Raphael and his circle, and I started off with this sketch from my sketchbook

Figure 1 (17 10 14 01) Sketch ink on A6 cartridge

I started drawing with charcoal and remembered to take progress photographs.

Figure 2 (17 10 14 02) Composition charcoal on A2 sugar paper

Figure 3 (17 10 14 03) Composition charcoal on A2 sugar paper

Figure 4 (17 10 14 04) Holy family at play, angels on point, charcoal and chalk on A2 sugar paper

Figure 5 (17 10 14 05) Holy family at play, angels on point, charcoal and chalk on A2 sugar paper

It needs developing a bit more with some hand studies and figure studies for the infant, but it is not bad. It has grown a classic renaissance pyramid for the figures and an illusion of a cross in the background of the infant the touching hands are an echo of Michelangelo’s hands of Adam and God. I know it is 500 years out of date, but just maybe just maybe, there is a Pope out there somewhere who needs one of these for his chapel

I hope you like it, the angels are on point because religion seems so militaristic these days. I am going to the pub now to watch the Mighty Arsenal hoping for some high art. I may see you tomorrow, if not be lucky.

Love as always

Mickos xx
