Badinage II: Knightshayes Court. Bamboo and metal pens, soft pastels by Lechertier Barbe and Inscribe, Conté crayons, Ingres paper, 12×18 inches, 3rd October 2018.
Here is the South facing entrance of Knightshayes Court, near Tiverton in Devon. I was thinking again about an illustration for my conversational poem to accompany Marin Marais’ expressive and even addictive piece of music `Le Badinage’. So I keep on thinking of where two people might be located and in what attitude, as they fall into easy conversation that comes and goes.
