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…….
