Sketching in the Galleries: Gordan Parks Photograph

Tonight our instructor led us into the exhibit All The World is A Stage where we drew from a selection of small drawings, lithographs, and photographs. I chose this photograph by Gordan Parks of Ingrid Bergman at Stromboli, Italy. I was most interested in the relationship of the very dark shapes within this image and used a carbon pencil, H, and Ebony Pencil on Bristol Paper to reproduce the contrast.

This was the last artist facilitated Sketching in the Galleries at the Dallas Museum of Art. Sketching in the Galleries will continue to be encouraged but there will be no regular artist led program so that they can focus their public programs funding toward Thursday night adult events in the new Center for Creative Connections.
