Light hearted sketching from the fab Kelvingrove collection

6 December 2018

Back at Kelvingrove for the second time this year, this time inside! So much to draw, look at and investigate, so many fantastic and mysterious objects in the East Court.

Within a few metres of where we sat we had an array of things such as masks from Australasia, Native American clothing and designs, very old Chinese vases, statues of Queen Victoria and other notable persons.

We used coloured pencils, as well as lead pencils and pens at this drawing group event.

Loose doodles and continuous line drawing helped us start, as well as looking at the materials, symmetry and detailing in the interior of the space, such as the ornate lights, stone arches, and decoration..

The floating heads sculpture drew our gaze too with the repeated comical expressions and changing colours on the faces.

The odd mix of objects created a fun environment for us to play with some drawings and connect to the objects in a slower, deeper way than we may normally do while passing through the collection, so we all found that really worthwhile and a pleasant thing to do.
