limbering up with some foot and leg studies
These are the main members of the gang in Stanley Kubrick’s film noir ‘The Killing’ from 1956. The film has great diversity of characters, some of the more sinister ones I have yet to draw. George Peatty the ticket teller played by Elisha Cook Jr. is my favourite in this, with his hangdog look and thwarted expressions but it’s a great cast all round and full of noirish atmosphere, striking shadows, litter and cigarette smoke.
Below are some sketches from an old press photo of Santiago U Peralta, casino manager in Argentina, that I made for a stone carving which I never completed in 2003. This, bizarrely, led me to walking the Camino de Santiago three years later, which I did complete, in 2006. Above are two sketches from that walk.
