Further Development of Sketches inspired by Degas’s After the Bath 1900.
Below is further development in the same style but using Richard Johnson Thursday Morning Sketch as a basis for the model pose with Bikini and beach.
Below is a further development from the life drawing done at the beach.
Being highly critical the legs in the standing child pose and the last drawing are too long so will need to be bought back to perspective. The only criticism of the copy of Richard Johnson’s pose is the position of the figure, how the viewer would interpret the image would a person lie on a sun bed in this way (sun bed not represented either ). However out of all four its the composition I like the most. The image of my four-year old daughter playing in the sand (2nd image) has a lot of energy because of the emotive connection, unsure if the viewer will see’s it?
