I was at the National Gallery of Art yesterday drawing with friends. I had planned in advance to draw from Cezanne’s Still life with Apples and Peaches because it relates well to my own still life paintings of the moment. My drawing of one section of his still life is rendered approximately actual size. I have been doing more work on it at home too, using the image on NGA’s website and the zoom feature.
Our drawing group had a good turn out yesterday. (And of course I consider Cezanne a friend too.)
Here’s Cezanne’s painting for comparison. Even if you are far from the gallery, you can copy it too.
