Oils on canvas paper 50 min study of Nathan Altman's painting which I saw at the Russian Exhibition in London last year. Still plenty to do on this but it was great practice for me. This one is not strictly in keeping with the premise of this blog - to do sketches and paintings from life -but sometimes it is really worthwhile to study the work of others in this way.
Then in our souls there seems to languish
A tender grief that is not woe;
And thoughts that once wrung groans of anguish,
Now cause but some mild tears to flow. (Charlotte Bronte)
