Drawing at the NGV

Went back to the Stieglitz 291 exhibition at the NGV today to draw my favourite photograph.
Regents Canal by Alvin Coburn.

I found an image on the web, but it is far lighter, so you can see the midtones and the area in the bottom right hand corner more clearly.

The image in the NGV is far darker and the detail is not apparent. This is a bit irritating as I thought that I woud see more detail from the print in the gallery - whereas the web version is clearer. Still it was interesting to draw the photo.
