megaloceros giganteus at Leeds City Museum

 January, and as I have done for the last three years, a trip to the Leeds City Museum to draw the Megaloceros Giganteus.

Annoyingly they have changed the lighting in the room, whilst it  certantly gives more detail to the neck, it adds some really unnatural horrible highlights and illuminates the eye socket very odd.  The underneath of the chin and under the skull is also illuminated very oddly and the detail on the chin has  been lost. Heres a picture of how it used to be lit


For some reason, my smokeback.com site is down at the moment. But you can see my sketch here on flickr

see you in 2012

  1. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
