Since the security guards will only allow pencils to be used inside the museum (no ink pens or liquids), it forced me to break out the 3B. But I rather enjoyed using the pencil and intend do it more. The sketch above is of an Egyptian bronze of "Horus of Buto". The terra cotta portrait below is of "Jean-Francois Ducis", sculpted by Augustine Pajou in 1779.
These other sketches are from an outing to Shawnee Mission Lake yesterday (I took a vacation day to start the weekend early). I rented a canoe, paddled to a quiet cove, tied up to a branch, and just enjoyed the breeze. I was a bit frustrated because my new sketch pen was clogging on me, and the ink blurred the colors of the watercolor washes. But it was fun, and I'll try this again sometime. I've posted these on Facebook, so apologies if you've seen them already.
