So last Saturday evening found Mr. M. and me at the lovely Galérie Saladin in Sidi-Bou-Saïd, run by Ridha Souabni. We attended the vernissage of a Tunisian painter, Ahmed Souabni.
Sketching in a museum or at an exhibition helps me remember the event and I always learn something about line, color, and subject matter.
So I whipped out my small sketchbook and ball point pen and sat in front of "Quo Vadis" (shown above), which has spectacular movement and a beautiful use of color laid down in wide swaths. At home, I did a color study with colored pencils to appreciate the work.
Mr. M. posed with "Le départ des pêcheurs" ("The
Departure of the Fishermen").
All in all, a pleasant evening.
