The day by day work pays back. The drawing I show today is excellent. It was a response to Antonio López Garcia's sculpture "Man and Woman" (below). He is a contemporary realist, and like me, many of his works depict couples. At the end of today's post I show a painting of his. López Garcia is older than I, born 1936. He is revered in Spain, some critiques have called him Spain's greatest living painter. The emotional gravity of his work is enormous, and demonstrates how simple compositions can be expressively powerful. The "Man and Woman" sculpture struck me with its size difference between the man and the woman. This one idea instigated my drawing, which is, of course, quite different in image when compared to Antonio López Garcia's sculpture.
