I began a drawing of St John the Evangelist last year but abandoned it. Last week, a short notice call for submissions to an exhibition for which he is relevant had me putting him back on the easel and finally completing him. I didn’t enjoy this drawing. I don’t feel it demonstrates my ability as it has no life. Of course it doesn’t, it’s a statue but I found this very, very difficult. Yet I enjoy drawing collars on dogs, bicyles, cars which have no life but wait…they shine…they are shiny and sparkly. I think this was the problem with St John…he has no sparkle in stone form.
Still, here he is, finished and ready for the exhibition.
My husband has submitted a couple of photographs..I am very proud of him.
I’m happy that Crumpet is back on the easel.
