The Drawing Room
Topic: Drawing

When we were in Los Angeles last year we spent a couple of hours at The Getty Center and wished we had much more time there. So, earlier this week, we made time for it and flew down to spend two days viewing all the artwork on display.

What a treat! There is something magical in standing in front of a painting of irises by Van Gogh, a sculpture by Degas, a landscape by Monet... To see the brushstrokes, fingerprints in the paint, chisel marks of a master - it is almost overwhelming.

One small section of the museum is an area called The Drawing Room in which a small-scale statue, a couple of marble busts and several paintings are displayed. There are benches with built-in easels around the room and you are provided with paper, a large clipboard and a packet of drawing materials.

With these supplies you can sit and draw - with the sculptures and paintings as inspiration. What Fun!

I selected one of the busts and drew in sepia conte crayon. Here is my model:


And here is my finished work - about 1/2 hour of time invested:


For anyone who desires, they will put your work up on the bulletin board. Thus one can say they have work hanging in The Getty!
