Well done. Timing was right. I especially liked the opportunity to show my diagram to the Instruuctor.
I only lasted about 35 minutes, half of which was a recap of the history I had heard that morning. The first topic she mentions when she finally gets to drawing is how important scale is. I would imagine that most people taking this workshop were working on printer paper. 8.5” x 11,” which does not scale down to the size of the paper that Van Gogh was using, so from the beginning your drawing will be off. The long pauses while she waits for you to sketch in the roof lines are endless. She doesn’t seem to have a sense of when folks are finished. Understandably this is difficult as she can’t see what people are drawing, but still the time lags go on and on. I had hoped that there would be more emphasis on the way that Van Gogh makes marks and the textures he creates. More spontaneity. Honestly, after 35 minutes, I couldn’t do any more. Sorry to say this because her talk on Van Gogh was good and I think all of the other Context tours I have taken have been great.
