Some of Peter's Apple Drawings
I have been neglecting my photo scanning project lately and decided to get back into it. I still have so many to do. Recently, while combing through a box of old pictures, I found these photographs of some drawings that Peter did many years ago for a show. He was making a lot of sculpture based on apples at the time and so his drawings were of apples too. I particularly like this drawing. The apple looks like it is made of silver.
Peter's drawings could be so light and delicate-looking, but they still had a sculptural quality. He was obviously fascinated by the structure of the things he was drawing.
We had some peaches in a bowl in the kitchen, so he decided to draw them too, with one apple in the background. I am so glad I found the photos of these drawings - I had forgotten about them and they bring back a lot of memories. A beautiful find!
