My first attempt to post a video. If successful it should show us at the morning sketch at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and the afternoon sketch at the Brooklyn Museum. If it shows nothing, well, I've got a lot to learn about video.
THE MORNING SKETCH:
We met at the hot house at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. I wanted to make sure I positioned myself so people could find me as they arrived. The location l selected had more to do with the proximity to the main entrance than it did with finding the most beautiful view. That's just as well since I've got a theory about this.
I believe that there is a potentially a beautiful picture everywhere you are. The limitations are not in the subject matter. For me the limitation in my ability to be inspired by the view and skill required to capture that potentially beautiful scene. The point is "the view" is never at fault.
THE AFTERNOON SKETCH:
|The Cloaked Official|
|The Seated Wadjet|
|The Kokopelli Kachina Doll|
The Kokopelli is the ancient Anasazi symbol of the humpbacked, minor god flute player. His main task is to provide abundance, fertility and rainmaking - good work if you can get it.
Svetlana showed me a great balcony that overlooked the lobby of the museum. We sketched the people in line for the coat check.
