30 Days of Sketches—Day 8

Sketching J Waterhouse's "Lady of Shalott"

John Waterhouse’s “Lady of Shalott”

I’ve read about art students copying The Masters, so today I gave it a try.  I love the Pre-Raphaelite artists—so moody, so romantic—and was thrilled to find a book of John Waterhouse’s work at the bookstore.  They didn’t mind that I sat in the coffee shop section and copied the prints.  It was a little disconcerting when other patrons stopped and watched over my shoulder, but they were very polite and encouraging.  A fine experience.

    I, too, am a big fan of the Pre-Raphaelites. Lovely sketch, Sandy.
