Just a quick post, as I have another sketch for the 2014 Medusa calendar that I thought you might like to see. I have found it more difficult to get a grip on the late spring and summer months: May June and July. Perhaps the start and ending of things are more characterful. Even August was not a problem, because that is shading off into Autumn and fruitfulness (August has a plum tree if you haven’t seen it), but somewhere in the middle of the year I find the months a little indistinct.
So, this is probably the sketch for July, thought it could be June, well, frankly in this country and especially last year I don’t think it would have been any month, but here it is – Medusa and the Snakes in the Long Grass:
Not the best photo – I have lost the daylight – but I kind of like the glare of the lamp that I used to take the photo with – perhaps when I turn this into and etching I shall have a sunny glare above Medusa. For the present I have not quite decided how i will approach it as an etching, so that’s all I have to say, for now!
