The Fisherman's Woman

(viewed 539 times)
I had not been looking forward to life drawing class with Mark in charge. It was reasonably certain that he would not allow me to slip into the comfortable groove of portrait drawing at the end, although, surprisingly, he did use the word 'portrait' at one stage during the evening. It came to nothing.

The experience wasn't as bad as I had anticipated even though the proper proportions fo the human body still illude me totally.

At the end of the class Mark announced that, rather than yet another still life, we were to bring one of the life drawing sketches to class this week and be prepared to place the figure in a context. Dispite pondering all week, I had no ideas.

The sketch began just as a composition trial and the figure was originally meant to be leaning against a tree. The ocean view just evolved. Then I wanted to try out some colours using watercolour pencils. I can't remember ever having completed a piece totally from my imagination, without a reference, before now. I am reasonably pleased with the result.

I would forgive my little mate almost anything.
