I geared up for attempting a long neglected art project. It's been nearly TWO YEARS that this poor armature has sat, all "boney".
I started with sketching from a similar statue of Heru (Horus), that is only the body, (and changing out the falcon head for a Set head, .)
Miho Museum in Japan has a lovely silver statue of Horus. It used to have gold gilding, as evidenced by what remains. I imagine the missing throne was of pure gold.
So I did so, too:
I took a break from this project to read a biography of Cézanne that I've borrowed from the library. I'm on the second chapter, where the author is talking about his relationship with his father. He would paint portraits of his father as he was reading the newspaper.
I looked up from the book to see Julia at the computer. I realized I could have a go at drawing her, as she doesn't move around a lot when she's busy with the genealogy:
(The front of her hair has more gray than the back of her hair...)
