July was starting to look very sparse of any artwork until, I’m happy to report, the final weekend.
On the final Friday of the month I took some test photos for a half-formed idea for a future photographic piece with a very deliberate “androgynous Georgian Dandy captured by English revolutionary insurgents” vibe.
(In my head I imagined the French Revolution translocated to England - les tricoteuses are now formidable old women from Bradford.)
I hope to photograph the finished piece in August or, more likely, September.
And then on the Sunday I managed to fit a life-drawing session:
Initially I was going to use a sanguine red Conté crayon, but found myself switching to graphite pencil with some white Conté crayon for highlights.
This is the first full life-drawing session I’ve done since May — I’m not sure what happened to June — but I hope to get back to doing two life-drawing sessions per month from now on.
My thanks, as always, to the life-models, without whom… etc.
