I’m pleased with this first drawing. I think I’ve captured the distortion seen by standing close to the plinth.
The rear view was far less successful. In my defence, I rushed it as it was absolutely freezing!! I think it’s the legs that are wrong but I’m not quite sure why.
This statue is at floor level and is slightly smaller than life-size. It has a crude surface finish and the proportions of the soldier are quite willowy. I’m happy that I captured what I observed accurately, but slightly disappointed that because of this, the drawing seems inexpertly done.
