The title sounds far more dramatic than things actually were but as you can see I somewhat screwed up the proportions of this life drawing I was making this morning. I have written before about internal contradictions in any drawing or painting. Sometimes you are able to get away with things and then others it just becomes too much. This is a case in point – I just didn’t get the proportions correct and then the more I tried to correct it the more they got away from me. Ce la vie.
The one good thing about the first drawing is that when I abandoned it I decided to try a new technique and I think it worked. This is the second in the series Faces of Leicester.
