Singer Sargent at the National Portrait Gallery in London. 

  

Yesterday I was very lucky to see the Sargent exhibition in the National Portrait Gallery. This sketch was much smaller than I had imagined it – only having seen it reproduced in a book. It contained a great deal of sand which must have been incorporated, as it was made on the beach. 

I had a great time looking at Sargent’s use of paint, and thoroughly recommend the exhibition if you get the chance.
