Auguste Rodin's Adam - Art Gallery of Ontario
Over the last few weeks, I have been going to the free Wednesday evenings at the Art Gallery of Ontario, where I find a quiet corner and draw for 1 hour-90 minutes. My latest focus has been Auguste Rodin's Adam. After each week, I would scan in this pass, so you can see how I build it up as I go.
My next piece I am studying is an oil painting by Augustus John of The Marchesa Casati in 1919. I enjoy these longer studies to try and get inside the head of the artist and understand the decisions he or she made.
