The Commons:Detail

commons_detail_russell

Here we see the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, and his three soon to be dewigged clerks. The clerks have complained about their itchy horsetail wigs for years, and will soon be able to cast them aside thanks to one of many reforms introduced by Mr Bercow in his efforts to modernize the Commons.

Media:Gouache.

  1. The sparse indications of features is something I work on constantly…and haven’t quite mastered. This is a perfect example (for me) to use as a study….a reminder that the mind is capable of filling in the details if we choose only to give the eye a bit of what should be there. Masterful, Russell.
