God and Goddess in a Landscape, Vanaheim

I decided to bring in a male figural element into this piece. Risky stuff, not used to using the human form for a long while, but want to bring it into these explorations. The feel of Vanaheim is still eluding me, but I’m not forcing anything. I know it will┬ácome. I need to get out into nature to do some drawing as well. Maybe at the weekend. I have noticed one or two motifs already. The male model is again from a very old life study done in a small sketchbook. Sometimes these drawings are just waiting to be rediscovered and brought back to life to point me in a new direction. I’ll share the study as well. Don’t forget to click on the images to get enlargements to see the marks more clearly.
