So this is the prequel for the Turkish Bath drawing.
I’m not sure how I feel about this one if I’m perfectly honest.
Parts of it I really like, but parts of it make me feel slightly claustrophobic.
I guess that was the plan (or part of it) so that’s a good thing.
The children in the corner are pouring petrol down the stairs in a bid to get attention.
The lady in the center, behind the queers toasting and in front of the lady holding the dog collar and leash is the hostess of the party (I think).
I researched all the outfits of the era and drawing the stair-case was a right bitch. The perspective was really hard to get right. Still not sure I got it right either.
Put it up somewhere.
Maybe the loo?
You can look at it while you’re on the pot and then you can tell me if it makes you feel claustrophobic or not.
Maybe it’ll just constipate you.
Feel free to tell me that too.
(I’d recommend a slightly larger size than the smallest which is A4 = 8″ x 10″ or letter-paper size. )
