This piece didn’t go down well in the RDS class. To be honest I didn’t like it either because it failed to do what I was attempting which was not to fall back on to old drawing and painting habits. Orlando described it correctly and dismissively as ‘a water colour’. I knew what he meant. He was striving for us all to investigate our drawing processes more vigorously and in that, here, I entirely failed.
Others in the class seem to be breaking free and I will try to follow them. It is really hard to ‘become untethered’, as Orlando describes, but I’ve a life drawing class at Tottenham Art Classes this evening and will have another go with a different model and setting.
