Wildman Life Drawing #2




These are a few more of my sketches from last night's life drawing class at the Horse Hospital in Bloomsbury for the event 'What is it?' Bigfoot Life Drawing Class

For the lesson the organisers had managed to capture a genuine Wildman o' the Woods, or Woodwose, controlled with great sensitivity, and, where necessary, sharp cruelty by master 'Nervous' Stephen Fowler.

A simple creature, the woodwose must be appeased with chocolate, pork pies and fruit, and hugs, and kept in check with caustic flicks of the malacca cane.

As you can perhaps tell I saw the Wildman with my medievalist eye...
