Central Park Sketching and Art Meet up Group

Our Meet-up Group is now meeting twice each month - and because of a very rainy Sunday, we met at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this week.  I went over early so I could see the Members Preview of the new Picasso exhibit.  It is a collection of the Met's Picasso holdings and it is really impressive.  In the second room they have the collection of small caricatures that he did of his artist friends in Barcelona ca 1900.  I fell in love with these when they were in the Barcelona Modernity exhibit several years ago and took a few minutes to sketch one.


Our Meet-up group then did several 30 minute sketching sessions in the American Wing of the Museum and shared our sketchbooks after each one.  I sketched a sculpture in the Atrium, an art nouveau Roseville Vase on the Mezzanine, and a painting by Robert Reid in the Gallery.






Fleur de Lis is particularly lovely, Shirley. I particularly love that left sleeve! So loose, so convincing!

Ooh, I like these very much! How wonderful that you go there and draw...... I'm trying hard not to be green! lol nancy

All of these are very good! I would love to have that pottery!

Oh how I wish that I was in New York to visit the Met, and be in a Art meet up group... It sounds like so much fun, and your work is lovely.

How are you doing with Dodson by the way? I got stuck again, unfortunately, but I'm getting there.
