Dearest Cleo

Happy Quarter Day!

I have been quite busy watching Mario creating my new web site, it is live but it is not finished yet, so I don’t want to give it too much publicity until all the walls are populated, the floors are swept and it looks like a proper gallery. When that is done I will give you a link here.

In the meantime with all the business, I have not been posting here so often so here are the life drawings that I have worked on in my brief absence, whatever happens the show must go on.

This one I like and I think there is a pattern emerging, once I have drawn somebody two or three times I am begining to capture a bit of their individuallity and they look look more fluid on the page because of it.

Technically this is not a life drawing, it was done from Croquis Cafe 214 from a paused television screen. I used the same working process that I use in the life room but it took around forty minutes as opposed to the usual twenty minutes for the rest of the drawings here. I think I need to make an effort to find a life class with a single pose as I could probably calture much more of the essence of the person without the rush.

The same individuallity is creeping in here again and if you look closely you can see the remnants of my construction lines. I think with some tracing paper this could be developed, a la Degas, into a fully rounded individual.

Really looking forward to catching up with you tomorrow see you then

My love as always
