In this sketchbook assignment we were told to draw and paint 3 vignettes of people with large scale objects. These vignettes could be either fanciful or realistic. I took an approach that was more of a mix of mythology and reality by using a reference to the myth of the golden apples (i.e. what the girl is reaching for), and including the female statue in the toga. The modern part comes from my scale figures. the girl with red hair, the boy in the green swim suit, and the man in the canoe in the back ground. The other part of this assignment was to present these three vignettes in a unified way. I did this by placing all of my scenes on or in the water.
I’ve washed my face, brushed my teeth, and combed my hair,
And now I must put on my face in front of the mirror.
Now to put on my socks.
Then follows pants,
Now I must choose the potion I will use.
For I am going into the night
A space void and absent of light.
I venture with my companions
Into this dark night
Passing shadows in the fading light.
This journey that we make
Determines the vapor I will take.
First on my wrist.
Then my neck.
I smooth the fragrant mist across my chest.
Now through this potion I have my suit of arms
Protecting me from harms.
Now I my breastplate, vambraces, and helmet.
With my band of Knights am going into the night.
This dark night.
