Hepworth Cello

You know I can't resist a cello. Something about the curve of the neck or the little twiddly bits...


Went to the Wakefield Hepworth gallery. A beautiful building inside and out. Go.

And there was a cello recital by Ryan Madhok in one of the galleries. 

Sketches not the best by any standards but such a pleasure

He sat in front of a huge William Scott painting which made the composition even better. William Scott is one of those British Painters whose work you walk past in the Tate and think nothing of. Until you see a whole room full of them, and then you fall in love and wonder why you ever walked past them in the first place. I urge you, if you haven't already, go and look at them. Properly. Wonders.

  1. Love the sense of depth in that third drawing... the cavity between the guy's body and the cello really draws the eye in.
