Chagall Exhibition Liverpool Tate on Saturday

Another section of the ‘War’ painting from the bottom corner. I was drawn to these two figures. I made the pencil marks first, then got disturbed by a tour going round the exhibition. I came back and added the oil pastel colour. Some of the marks are quite thin and layered. You don’t get an impression of the colour from the catalogue that I bought. Drawing always brings the experience and moment back to me much more fully. I have a little sketchbook and a box of pastels that are quite big and chunky with particular slots for each one which makes responding easier in what was a very busy gallery. Chagall is hugely popular still and it was the last day of the show. A great experience that I will be processing for a long time.
