Photography isn't allowed, but sketching stools are provided. We happily sat and drew, then lunched at one of the many eateries along Kingsway.
|Janet K researched plastic surgery 1918, in the form of a 2004 sculpture - the|
lifted skin shows the layers; the eye, lip, ear are left as normal. She finished with
a 2-minute drawing from a different angle
|Janet B, too, ended with a very quick drawing, having warmed up with|
half a dozen other subjects
|Joyce used two art pens with soluble ink and started with the flaps.|
Catching the detail was difficult, without knowing anatomy!
|My collection of instruments for paediatric surgery and microsurgery|
|Michelle, who is left handed, remembered to draw on the right page first, so|
that the skull wouldn't be smeared when she worked on the mammoth tooth
|Sue's "Irish Giant" lived from 1761 to 1783; this is a facial reconstruction by Richard Neave |
and Dennis Smith made in 2013; half of the bust is stripped back to the sinews.
