Old Drawings #3
Poron with Books and Fruit (2B pencil, cartridge paper, 16.5 x 12 ins.)
Another traditionally arranged still life set-up, again from about 1973. The idea in all of these was to set them up like a little city, with some books under the cloth making a kind of mountain on which to arrange some of the important elements of the still life, in this case, more books and an earthenware poron.
I used to find this kind of drawing deeply satisfying, but I'm not sure I would be able to get into it now.
