Drawing At Night

22 Feb


London 1

Husb and I are in London overnight, for the Sky Arts ART50 festival at The Barbican tomorrow. We had a wander around central London, hanging out in the Charing Cross / Leicester Square area, found a nice Vietnamese restaurant for our dinner and then went to the National Portrait Gallery, which stays open late on Fridays. They had an artist in residence running a drawing session so I had a quick scribble. They provided the materials, thank you very much.

London 2

The original is Lady Ottoline Morrell, painted by the rather scandalous Augustus John. The subject has a pronounced underbite and distorted teeth, which the artist didn’t shy away from. We arrived at the drawing session late so I only had a few minutes to sketch.
