Sketching in the Galleries - Inside Outside

This week we first went to the African Galleries and chose two different objects and drew the basic contour of the object. We then went the European Galleries and filled the contour shapes first within the contour on one sheet, and then on the outside of the contour on the other.

Within the Inside shape I chose a an impressionist painting of men sharpening their hay scythes. The shapes of the scythe fit the shape I was filling. For the outside contour I chose a portrait showing the eye and nose within the opening in the shape.
