This course sets out to explore two contrasted aspects of drawing, alternating each week. In the city participants will make fast drawings with the aim of capturing something essential from the fragmentary life in motion which surrounds them. Drawing in The National Gallery is a way to understand the mystery of earlier paintings. It is unlike drawing from life or from photographs, because these paintings have been structured in extraordinary and different ways. As you draw, you see parts reflecting and mutually enhancing each other. A sort of magical, magnetic field has been built, where every element in the painting plays a role. The aim of this class is to help individuals experience some of the rich complexity which underlies the apparent simplicity of these paintings. Students will choose a painting they like and will work on one large drawing for five days. This gives an opportunity to make a sustained study of a painting where revisions and corrections are part of the process.
