Statuesque

A marble Roman mask of Pan in the Cordoba Archeological Museum, a contemporary brass statue of Siva sat on my desk (distant cousins?), followed by a couple of views of a battered ‘crouching Aphrodite/Venus‘ (also in the Cordoba museum).

    great studies, like the contrast with blue background- fab as usual!

    Many thanks Rowena, it helped that these subjects stayed still while I sketched… The blue fill-ins make an otherwise pale sketch stand out. I did a few similar ones at the ongoing Greek sculpture exhibition at the British Museum. I’ll post them soon. Ed
