Sketching in the Presence of Original French Masterworks



I had a wonderful time sketching again (it was the second event at mga, thanks also to frank of last peek drawing events) in front of original works, sketches photos, prints and poster of the french masters Degas, Lautrec, Daumier and Atget. This session of figure drawing was based on a ballerina, perhaps not a theme I would pick but the challenge of the short poses and trying out a range of medium keep me focused and enjoying the situation, It forced home my concern that so much of what folk take as experience living on the social web is a poor reproduction on a tiny screen of the reality of life and art.
