Lockdown nude – 01

Ink wash, graphite and coloured pencil on paper – 56 x 80cm

A further experiment at woking with ink washes and coloured pencil. Obviously there is no model and this is based on a previous life drawing sketch from Tottenham Art Classes transposed surreally to our living room.

This way of working still has some way to go as I realise the inadequacies of the earlier sketches and working on our dining table as opposed to an upright easel. This makes problems with the lack of foreshortening of the figure – the legs and the sofa are too big and extended.

The drawing weirdly reminds me of naff populist poster art from the 1980’s which is not where I was trying to go with this image!
