DEAR FRIENDS, PATRONS & BENEFACTORS:
In several recent drawings, I have gotten good results by taking photographs of posed live models and referencing them while drawing. My intention is not to draw portraits; I almost always change the faces beyond recognition. Rather, it is to make the anatomical proportions and fabric folds more accurate. I plan to do this for all of the drawings in the Summula Pictoria.
Because I usually set my drawings (whether of the Old Testament, the New Testament or the lives of the saints) in the material culture of the Late Middle Ages, I need to obtain or construct appropriate clothing for my models to wear. Since I often draw angels and saints wearing albs, copes, chasubles and dalmatics, I am putting out an appeal for old liturgical vestments. It does not matter if they are damaged or dirty or extremely ugly; all that matters is that they be in basically the correct shape. Please e-mail me if you would be willing to donate or barter any to me.
This newsletter’s giveaway is of stationery. I found a stash of sheets that I had printed (digitally, on acid-free paper) years ago, featuring an original design of dog rose, oak and magnolia braches. While supplies last, I will include a package of 10 sheets with every order received.
