walking on water - 100 drawings in 100 days

i went to see the Picasso exhibition on monday, at the Gallery of Modern Art in brisbane. this is the second big-name exhibition they've had since i've been here. the last one was Andy Warhol - both of which were spectacular!! and although i do so enjoy going to see them by myself, taking it all in at my own pace, i would so dearly love to be one of the "lucky people" who get invited to the actual opening reception. i want to dress up and go to an evening with the art, hear the speakers and talk to the other art-lovers about their thoughts on the paintings/sculptures. maybe when i get to know more people here...

anyway, i took the city ferry to the gallery and while i was sitting in the sun, i was fooling around with my iphone, when i saw this composition in the view finder - wow!!! i loved it, so here is just a man's legs, nicely polished leather shoes, great pin-striped trousers and a briefcase. simple as that! and yet, when i started drawing it, i hated it. how funny, because now i love it! the title of this drawing is "walking on water". and if you haven't seen the Picasso and His Collection exhibition, it is well worth it! now i can say i've been inches from a Picasso, a Matisse, and a Miro, to name but a few.
