Sketching in the Galleries: Calders' Three Bollards

Tonight we returned to the Nasher for our night of sketching. Our instructions were to find a sculpture in the outdoor sculpture garden and integrate out drawing with aspects of its environment. We started at 7:15 so our daylight time was limited and rapidly changed. After 15 minutes of sketching the lights came on and changed the color and depth of my subject. I brought out my orange and continued on. I finished by bringing in the color of the grass and the shadows cast by the sculpture. It was soon too dark to see my black paper so I moved to a brighter place to finish up. My media was hard pastel on black Ingress laid paper.
