The Golden Bowl iv

img_7268.jpgHere’s the drawing with the fifth figure added to the right side. There’s still some tweaking to be done: in particular I’m not thrilled with the figure on the left. I gave him a book, but it doesn’t really work, and I might have to redraw his arm again, having moved it to get it more cleanly placed on the composition line, and made him look weedy. I’ll mess with it on Monday and see if I can simply improve the muscle tone. I think the book will have to go elsewhere.

It’s all a bit rough, but I’m enjoying the composition and the allegory of the piece. I’m looking forward to getting some paint on it.
