Greek Sculptures of the Louvre

Greek Sculture Pic

Heh, a bit backlogged with my posts.. I was at the National Museum last Sunday with friends to see this exhibition before it leaves in March. I’ve always been in awe of what great sculptors could achieve with stone, but this is the first time I’ve had the chance to see any up close in real life. We spent about 3 hours there sketching – which just shows how slow I am, but I’m working on that – before rushing off to lunch and a jamming session at Paradiz Centre..

Anyway it’s definitely worth the trip, it’s normally $8+ but if you have a student card it’s $4.. drawing models that’ll hold their poses for as long as you want.. well, till March anyway.. Oh yeah, picture courtesy of Mai since my camera was sent for repairs then.

Moved on from the full body Satyr sculpture after my friend made me realise that I’d been taking a reaaally long time just to draw that.. maybe 20+ minutes?
