Art Description

Drawing: Charcoal, Conte, Pastel, Graphite on Paper.

This staircase of five floors is in a courtyard on the Isle de Saint Louis in Paris. I gained access because an apartment was being renovated, I stayed and drew for a while, took some photographs and returned .to my studio to complete the large drawing in various layers with a water based wash as well. It was expressively drawn , full of gesture.. It may become a painting one day. Staircases are so mysterious and full pf promise. They also reflect my life. I love the way you look up then down and see openings and ways through. It was narrow and dark but there was daylight at the top. There is always light! I love the way the light casts shadows of the metal banister. The paper is 120 x 80 but the ideal size framed would be 95 x 60cms but that I will leave to you.
