After Cézanne II

I have done some more sketches as my 'homework'. 
We cannot use charcoal in the gallery, so I have done these from a photo of the work.
I will do pencil studies of the original (see below) just before next workshop.

Bords de la Marne by Cézanne: Our state art gallery (museum) paid $16m for this Cézanne.

I attended a "Drawing Master Class" where we studied the winning entries in the Dobell Drawing Prize, and other works on paper by Delacroix, Matisse and other masters.
Then we were tasked with 'interpreting' one of the paintings hanging in the gallery.
The teacher was Aida Tomescu (the judge for the Dobell.)
