From today’s sketchbook :Fallen Patroclus

Actually yesterday’s, but I was too groggy to post. Working on other drawings today. This Patroclus is just a result of my continuing fascination with the heroic (and doomed ) archetype.

Once again my handy-dandy maquette came in handy-thank you Clive!

    1. The maquette seems to lend towards abstraction, all those flying limbs in unnatural poses. I thank you for that. I confess I feel it is an archaic direction rather than abstraction that I am searching for; but in the end it comes up the same .

    1. I think it is finished…for now. I’m playing with the figure, not sure where I am going with it. I suppose that is a good thing.
