A visit to Dulwich picture gallery

Went to see Murillo great exhibition and was amazed to see for the first time some paintings X-ray revealing the painters changes. It will probably will be easy to X-ray mine as I never do changes… Mind you doing that will probably reveal that I used the canvass for couple of paintings before. You can’t hide a thing now a day… I saw the ‘Girl at the window’ by Rembrandt and had to sit and sketched it with some friends…

One thing I learnt, not to fold a drawing and keep it in your pocket after sketching it as you see the marks… OK next time meantime I’ll stretch it.

Manana’s Granddaughter

I never tried to draw a baby face so when Manana my friend put a picture of her granddaughter I could not resist trying it. It actually was not that bad.¬† Babies have a different feature face then adults so a good observation is needed. But that is like every other sketch or drawings, paintings, unless you abstract you need to look and try to draw what you are actually see. Isn’t she¬†looks cute? She is great!
