The warrior

Henry Moore’s sculpture grew from the shape of a pebble.  I stood behind the bronze to make this sketch, aiming to use just white and light and dark sanguine to define it.  Once home, I couldn’t resist working over the lines again.  I perhaps should have left well alone.

Brexit day has been and gone since I last posted from the Peoples’ Vote march but we seem to be in the same place as that weekend.  I notice that the Labour Party is desperately looking for candidates to fight the European Parliamentary elections.  If you are short of something to do for a few months, it seems a good idea, a political taster.  It might be a way of having fun and meeting new people!  You have to have been a member for a year to stand for Labour, but if you are, you already know they are looking for candidates- check your email feed.  If not, there’s always the independent group who are less fussy who they take.

    • Thanks and I agree those bits worked.
      But my attempt to make the shield arm clearer by reworking lost what delicacy of tone I had had in the on site sketch and made it too cartoony. But that’s how drawing runs sometimes …,

  1. Very majestic. I like the lines.
    As to politics–the more things change…(doesn’t it seem we’re caught in the same endless and depressing tape loop?) (K)
