76. Drawing 1, Project 5 (3) War Memorial.

8 Sep 18. Some progress on my personal project. Working on the idea of the Ossett Marketplace as a war scene with the memorial in it.


My current thinking is along the lines of:

The statue as it currently is but hanging off the plinth. 

The statue replaced with a different figure, perhaps sitting with head bowed and face hidden, as in a drawing I made from a war photo.

Replacing the plinth and statue with the same seated figure but the “plinth” would just be another of the benches that are currently in the marketplace.

The statue wearing a gas mask.

Include some collage – photos and/or other items such as original First World War documents.
