Project 5, Exercise 4: Statues

Colchester War memorial…..Justice

The day was foggy and quite dark which gave a spooky feel to the statues. The first sketch is drawn in my A5 sketch book in pen , as Justice looms over me.


I couldn’t really see any detail due to the weather so this is more of a silhouette . However I loved this statue and googled some other pictures from which I have managed to see more detail and a different perspective.


I wanted to capture the mood of this day as the fog gave a spooky night time feel. I especially liked this view of the soldier at the base of the monument as you looked towards the castle gates. I used chalks on black pastel paper and tried a larger  A3 support .


I enjoyed drawing these images and trying different media and paper types and sizes. It has also given me a taste for the next section of the course.

    These are all so good… I particularly like the soldier – wonderful colour suggesting a rather tantalising narrative! Love it!
