Old Drawings #4

Hammer and Torch (2B pencil, A2 cartridge paper)

I finished photographing all the drawings I could find today, and it was quite a thrilling experience. I renewed acquaintance with one or two sets of drawings that represent avenues of enquiry that were cut short at University. Cut short largely due to tutors' indifference. I should have stood up for what I was interested in, I suppose, but because it's difficult to oppose indifference, I didn't, so I guess I must reluctantly share the blame.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. We'll come to those drawings in due course. Meanwhile, this is another of those careful still life drawings from around 1973, set up on card table in the living room..

You have that right about indifference, shrug! I like the hammer in the background, the curves and and modeling.

Ah, Corrine, what I wouldn't have given for even a shrug! Glad you liked the hammer.
