Shadow Of A Skeleton

8 Oct

Shadow of a skeleton.

The sun came streaming through my studio window yesterday and cast this shadow of Felicity the skeleton onto the door.  There’s a work in progress on the easel, a scaled up drawing from a life study in one of my sketchbooks. It’s in charcoal and pastels onto Somerset paper that has been previously coloured with a mixture of acrylic paint, acrylic medium and metallic powder. The model is a young soldier and I’m making a series of work based on him. Eventually I’ll also use this pose for a full-colour monotype. To the left of the easel are two more life drawings that will also be worked up into monotypes at some time.
