There’s no doubt that one of the best things about membership of the National Gallery is the view from the Member’s Lounge, looking down over the Sculpture Garden.
After seeing the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition we repaired to the Member’s Lounge for a cup of coffee and a piece of cake. I remembered that while I had no pen and paper I did have the new wonder-phone which had a ‘sketchpad’ function. Away I went with a series of quick sketches using my phone’s stylus. Unfortunately I hadn’t worked out at this stage how to change the background so everything was on a grid!
Tress and paving;
warning sign’s for slippery surfaces;
a bench and light-pole;
and this strange ‘found’ shape that my partner described as “a whale with a tumour”, in one of the paving slates.
Later in the evening I found out how to change the background. Also a quick fiddle with some of the pre-set objects in the program.
