Sometimes, drawing is nothing more than an exercise in deeper observation.
In Paris i had the wonderful opportunity to visit the exhibition dedicated to the work of one of my favourite paintings, Lucien Freud - held at the Centre Pompidou. As expected, the huge canvas seen live were breathtakingly better than any reproduction i had ever seen. The masterful brushstrokes, incredible energy and sense of composition were pure bliss. Alone, i travelled for over two hours in the exhibit space, sketchbook in hand, humbly copying some of the works.
