A few Thursdays ago a friend from Brisbane, Kathleen, was in town. She’s an artist and writer, and does the most adorable drawings wherever she goes, so I proposed an afternoon of sketching at the NGV’s 200 Years of Fashion exhibition. We met at Senior’s Art Supplies, where I bought some Copic markers.
Then we headed to the gallery. I stuck to black ink for this one:
The rest of my sketches I coloured later from memory, my photos and pics of the exhibition on Google Images. This one wasn’t so successful – should have chosen a better viewpoint than front on:
I love this:
The next one was a colour challenge, with the limited number of markers I had:
We were there until closing, and I did this with four minutes to spare, finishing it from memory as the guards herded us out:
Later I couldn’t find a picture online for the colours. It was only a week or so ago that a photo finally appeared.
I’ve never produced so many sketches in such a short time! It was fun having a sketching buddy for the afternoon, and it was a great way to experience the exhibition. I’d like to go back to see it again, and perhaps draw some more.
