Both Lyme, New Hampshire Paintings are complete. The one I post today is "Lyme's Soldier," representing the sculpture of a soldier on the Civil War monument, which stands on the Green in Lyme. At a certain angle Lyme's Congregational Church steeple is seen behind the monument. The church steeple is unusual, with four spikes surrounding the dome. There are clock faces on the steeple, but I have abstracted them into circles. Instead of continuing my description, please view the photo of the soldier, and church steeple, at bottom of today's post.
Yesterday's two drawings are simple practice drawings. Drawing #1 looks at a human head facing forward, which has its problems, as its symmetrical form is studded with details while it is, overall, a simple oval form (Paul Cezanne would tell you the same). Animating such a forward facing head is similar to animating an apple. Drawing #2 returns me to my Adam & Eve theme, which I have tackled many times before. Drawing #2 is definitely better than Drawing #1.
