a vigorous aside


Torso - form

The recurring demands of a series of drawings from five years back forced some action yesterday. Having no beautiful hardwood blank to hand I quickly glued a great wadge of chipboard, MDF and scrap timber together and left it in the vice overnight,
At the end of work today I took it out with a view to making a 'torso'. Here then is my baulk of assembled wood forms on which I have made some suggestive marks to for me to follow. Tomorrow is earmarked for watercolour so this will become a 'vigorous aside', a relief from the pressure of that most delicate of activities
