Music and drawing at the National Portrait Gallery

On Sunday we went along to the National Portrait Gallery for 'Drawn In'. It was an opportunity to draw Anton Wurzer (a piano accordianist) while he played.

It was a lovely relaxing afternoon - Anton was a really expressive guy and played his way through a wide repertoire from Tequila (everyone shouted 'Tequila' at the right moments) to more traditional stuff.

The gallery laid on all of the art material - not bad at all for a free event. It wasn't widely publicised (and a lot of people are 'out of town') so it was easy to get a cushion down the front.

We stayed for over an hour sketching away. I don't think we produced masterpieces worthy of the gallery we were in, but we'll look out for other similar events as it was great fun.

There was also the chance to dress up as the Kelly gang! - such is life!
