Sketching at the Nasher
Tonight was free night at the Nasher Sculpture Center and as such our sketching class crossed the street to have our Sketching in the Galleries Class in this world class sculpture museum. Our assignment for the evening was to choose a fairly realistic sculpture and initially sketch our choice, then to abstract this first sketch without referring to the original. We were to the repeat this process a third and possibly forth time from the preceeding drawings. I chose Aristide Maillol's "Night", a bronze cast in 1960 as shown in this photo by David Heald.
