Drawing large

If you study at the National Art School in Sydney (formerly East Sydney Tech - a name I think says more about the school) you spend a lot of time drawing on very large sheets of paper, a skill quite different from drawing small sketches. Perhaps it is training for the over sized portraits the Archibald curators like and for the large paintings that look good in the concrete skyscrapers we are so fond of building.

This drawing was done on a large sheet of brown paper at a life drawing class.
Our lovely model
