A Drawing A Day 1084

The Deposition, Part 4

No, it’s still not quite right, the previous drawings just don’t work for me. Then I decide to take the historical flow a step back and instead of using the imagery of a Pieta I look at crucifixion itself. I have to say while it is amazingly engaging to draw out of one’s mind in a “doodle” mode, it is quite a different thing to know what one wants in a general direction – a crucified body, then adding to it the “doodle” ingredient for working out the position of the body in one’s mind before actually drawing it while looking for an expression via the body language, remember it all, then combine the whole image with anatomical knowledge one can remember and only then start drawing. Quite a mental workout.
