Sketching the Pieta

Alice and I were discussing a image she has in our bedroom yesterday, a piece by Sam Taylor Johnson (Alice is a huge fan) 

‘Self Pieta, 2001’

Anyway…. It reminded me that i’d briefly toyed with this subject myself before but it never really amounted to much and, whilst on the bus to work this morning, I decided to have another go.

Pieta (Sketch) 2016

My first dabble is rough to say the least but it has made me consider just how I’m going to execute this (figurative or abstract) and as it’s such an iconic subject/image I think I’ve set myself a bit of a task. I think keeping it simple is the way forward but it has to be powerful… And that’s the challenge I guess. 

Simple, powerful.
