A couple of weeks ago, a friend and I visited the Egon Schiele Radical Nude exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery. One of the ways you can tell I really love a collection is if it makes me want to go home and draw or paint. And this one did. Of course I wouldn’t even dream about my work coming close to Schiele’s, but it is my work, inspired by him. And perhaps one day I will inspire others to want to go home and draw or paint. So here is my delayed reaction to Schiele’s wonderful works from that day.
