Looking East

We met at the Art Institute on Sunday for our monthly sketch crawl. I sketched in the Asian collection, an area I rarely explore. Since the Art Institute only allows sketching in pencil I added the color to the axe and disk sketches from memory at home. The tomb guardians were completed on site. It was a fun afternoon. I throughly enjoyed working only with a Tombow 4B pencil and a Stillman & Birn, Gamma series sketchbook for a change. It was a connection with the ancients by working with hand, tool and material – nice.
