Annette Reading



Annette Reading. Pencil on paper. 58cm x 52cm, framed. For sale.

This is a preparatory drawing of my wife, Annette, for the painting Mary, Seat of Wisdom. The drawing is of Annette in our kitchen, reading. It’s an unusually stark drawing, as I am trying to portray her strong concentration, and also trying to understand her place in the room, linked to the composition of the various shapes and forms around her. No room for emotion here!
