skittle start

charcoal sketch 60cm x 60cm

I had it in mind to work on a medium size group for this, the second pub game picture. Using the Giotto open building room with steps I made this early drawing with five figures. with mast of the skittles almost dead centre there is a strong isometric triangulation. Behind its loose appearance is a very formal composition.
That the man in the centre is wearing what seems to be a dress is probably me overdosing on Giotto  rather than anything else. The animation and layout looks promising enough to me to stick this on the wall to observe and consider the way ahead.
With the chequers also at this stage I am ready to move on.
