View from above, 1 February 2013

There’s no doubt that one of the best things about membership of the National Gallery is the view from the Member’s Lounge, looking down over the Sculpture Garden.

After seeing the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition we repaired to the Member’s Lounge for a cup of coffee and a piece of cake. I remembered that while I had no pen and paper I did have the new wonder-phone which had a ‘sketchpad’ function. Away I went with a series of quick sketches using my phone’s stylus. Unfortunately I hadn’t worked out at this stage how to change the background so everything was on a grid!

Tress and paving;


warning sign’s for slippery surfaces;


a bench and light-pole;


and this strange ‘found’ shape that my partner described as “a whale with a tumour”, in one of the paving slates.


Later in the evening I found out how to change the background. Also a quick fiddle with some of the pre-set objects in the program.
