Apollo #1



I'm not sure this is finished, but I got it here after a lot of musing and preparation: my first sight-size cast drawing in 35 years! The last one done in Williamstown, MA, summer of 1980, studying under R.H. Ives Gammell, and a lifetime away.  I've been itching to try another one for some time, maybe to start some still-life work, maybe just to practice, we'll see where this takes me.



       I bought the cast from an antique store down the street, I made the easel. the stand and the wall was from my booth I made for the trade show last month.


In my shop, I set up the lighting to draw at night.  I have a carpet sample (you can barely see it) to stand on.
