Teaching and learning

February 23, a day of dark memories, a good day for drawing. Barcelona Dibuixa workshops go today to the museums and my group goes to the MNAC.

Teaching and learning #1
During the first hour we take a stroll by the Modern Art Collection. Students scatter along the halls and trying to see what they are drawing I just have the time for making this little scene.

Teaching and learning #2
Afterwards, we go for drawing the Palacio Nacional de Montjuïc, the building that holds the Museum. I make a sketch of one of the corners, I'm standing forcing my neck looking up but my hand today works by itself. As I'm drawing I think how I'll put the color. As I know I will not have time enough, I take a photo to fix the awesome play of light and shadow. Even if it's not finished and it will be later at home when I'll do it, I know somehow that the drawing has gone right.
I have the feeling that today is one of these days that, even if they don't know, my students have taught me much more than I have taught them.

Miguel that bottom one is absolutely fantastic, you've successfully navigated all the nooks and crannies well.

Suhita said...

Miguel, when you start a sketch like the one on the bottom, where DO you start? What a fascinating piece!

Miguel Herranz said...

Thank you, Jon and Murray.
Suhita, thank you too. I use to start by the big curves.

Patrizia Torres said...
