Well I thought the time would arrive at some point. There was no doubt there. It makes sense, doesn’t it? If you’re doing a project called “Fantasy Fannies” it makes sense to do the “Fantasy Willies” too! A whole new ball game, so to speak…………! And Fitzy has decided he wants to be the first member (anther pun?) of this project. I’m delighted! But this has got me thinking………. about the comparisons between the fantasy fannies and the fantasy willies. The shapes of fannies are abstract to start with – when I look at the photos I’m working from, I can see abstract shapes, so I’m beginning with an abstract before I even start to draw. But, a willie has a more recognisable shape to start with, and the point of these paintings is that the image is half recognisable, half hidden. That’s the point of the “joke” hidden within the painting. So, I have to now think how I’m going to hide the willie image within the painting. Its possible. Of course its possible. But to what degree do I want to do it? I’ll have to sit down and work it out on paper. It’ll be fun to play with shapes and the composition to do that.
I have another problem.
A ……… more recognisable problem.
Do I do them in an erect state or a more comatose state?
What do you think?
To be or not to be……………………….THAT is the question!!!! LOL
