Drop-by Drawing

sketchbook15Jan

 

A lovely afternoon today drawing at the National Gallery of Victoria with the Drop-by drawing free session.

My sketch was selected as the most popular sketch from all of today’s participants !!!!

It was a really nice surprise.

The NGV are providing free drawing every Sunday in January ( 2 – 4pm), with guidance from leading contemporary artists in collaboration with the Victorian College of the Arts.

Great for all ages.

I began by sitting in front of one of my favorite paintings in the NGV collection :  ANGUISH  by    August Friedrich Albrecht SCHENCK

I was very taken by the crows and enjoyed exploring the depth of their darkness, shape and tone…..

but I couldn’t bring myself to render the wounded lamb…….
