It is supposed to be the best weather since 1996 so make the most of it, I was cooped up all day drawing for the start of the book, I did venture out but only to sketch the concrete plant.
I worked out the size of the book to make it easy for the printer and made a template for the size of the images. Them I drew the first of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
The English translation has Death riding a pale horse, but it is a poor translation of the Greek word that means literally a greeny horrible sickly colour or a horse of a different colour.
Figure 1 (188.8.131.52) Death and War graphite Sharpie and coloured pencil on A2 grey sugar paper
Figure 2 (184.108.40.206) Serpent graphite Sharpie and coloured pencil on A2 grey sugar paper.
I am beginning to understand why Botticelli never finished his artist’s book, at this rate I may never finish Drawing 2, still each one completed means there is one less to do.
Enjoy the fine weather.
My love as always
