I'm enjoying my research into Van Gogh's approach to drawing. Besides Sjraar Van Heugten's book "Van Gogh - The Master Draughtsman" and other sources mentioned in the Introduction to Van Gogh Project, I've also found some more online sources.

The following provide a very useful perspective on Van Gogh's approach to drawing:Links:

  1. Many, many thanks for another treasure trove of VVG links, Katherine. I thought Michael Kimmelman's review/essay was brilliant. I could lose myself in the extract of letters for weeks! When will I ever get time to draw? When do YOU ever get time to draw?!

  2. Let me put it this way Robyn - I do these VG posts in stages and when I finally get to the morning I post them it has to be one where I don't have any other claims on my time!

    I have to say that I'm just getting the most terrific amount out of doing the research and, as ever, it would be a such a shame not to share it!

  3. Many thanks for a terrific and inspiring set of resources. Sargent, VanGogh, ... can't wait to see where you take us next!
