Drawing a greek bust in a museum. Original Sketch

in art •  last year

I'm sharing some of the sketches I did this weekend in the Walter's Art Museum in Baltimore. The roman and greek statues room is a great place to sketch (Although having to draw while standing is tiring.) I was drawing these sketches as quickly as I could while trying to be accurate. I believe more people should sketch in art museums. It is a great way of spending more time with the piece and understanding it better. Greco-Roman statues are particularly good for practicing because their light marble material reveals structure well.

Great drawing! I agree that more people should go and draw objects (even those who do not have your level of skill).

Forever envious of your seemingly ease of drawing!
