Monochrome Monday

For Monochrome Monday this week, I have a photo of a sketch.It was done by the artist, Frank Brangwyn, in preparation for the huge vividly-coloured panels he was commissioned, in 1924, to paint for the House of Lords in London. Five panels were completed but when displayed in the Royal Gallery became the subject of public controversy and criticism. They were turned down as being too colourful and lively, and now have a home in Swansea, in the Brangwyn Hall.

To take part in Monochrome Monday, go here.

Fairplay, Liz - B&W does not do justice to Brangwyn.

I were going to say: sketch is well better than't artist who wrote/drew "How to Draw Anything" book i got out ot charity shop t'other day. That were well crap! (Tut book were: your sketch is well good, aye!)

We shall be glad that tastes change and that they were taken care of elsewhere.

Liz said...

No, I prefer the sketches to the murals, aileni!

You've gone northern again, gleds!

I like the sketches very much, daryl.

Indeed, runee.

I love the sketch Liz. Somehow (although I'm sure Aileni would disagree!) I see more in a pencil sketch. The finished works seem too large and overpowering.
But then, I've always loved pencil sketches!
