Dearest Cleo

Here are this weeks life drawings. I have had a busy week, as you know .the house next door burnt out on Wednesday night. I think my life is turning into films, Mickos I Attacked by Damiens Dog three weeks ago and now Mickos II, Flaming Hell.

To be fair the EFD did an excellent job saving me and my house from the inferno, all that got burned was a bit of the back garden fence  and the kitchen windows cracked in the heat.

Now that the fire has gone out the back of the house next door is not so scary in fact in a sureal way it is kind of pretty. I took two photographs.

Figure 2 (17 11 26 02) Gutted, digital photograph

It happened in the middle of the night and it was very emotional, but nobody died and life goes on.

I digress here are the life drawings;

Figure 5 (17 11 26 05) charcoal on A2 grey sugar paper

I hope you like my drawings, catch up with you next week, dont forget your letter for Santa so I can give it to him when I see him in the pub.

My love as always

It was good to catch up yesterday and your Mum was pleased that we got rid of the birds both Hitchcock and Norman banished from your living room. Don’t let your Daddy slack up, there is still lots of paper to get rid of.

As usual on a Sunday I went life drawing, I drew these and I have added a drawing  did of Freya yesterday evening.

Figure 5 (15 11 12 05) charcoal and chalk on A2 grey sugar paper

Figure 6 (15 11 12 06) charcoal and chalk on A2 grey sugar paper

I remember drawing Freya while I was doing drawing 1 so it isn’t so revolutionary, what is revolutionary is the way that the back view if her  sitting down looks ready to move I think it is a good measure of how my drawing is improving.

I would bet that the one you like best is Freya, she sends her regards xfrdlg ?erwlfgdv      that was her virtual signature, a paw mark from Freya on the keyboard.

I was up early this morning because the Autumn term of Sunday morning life class started in Wanstead. I did 4 drawings, I thought I was a bit rusty after the break but things started to get a bit better when I switched to pencil.
