Sketching the Masters at the Frick with Master Urban Sketchers
I arrived late and bleary eyed, feeling off key with the daylight savings time hour jump. I pulled off three sketches and the company was great. I started with tonal study of this El Greco classic. He looks a little scary, kind of like one of my physics teachers from college.
I did a quick line drawing of this lovely Vermeer and later ran in a quick wash while winding down the day with the group.
There was a dancing guy in this painting who was annoying, and I tried to capture him. I think this is Don Quijote's sidekick Sancho Panza ("panza" in Spanish means belly). He was more annoying in the painting than in my sketch:
So thanks, Sketchers, for the great company and inspiration, and thanks especially to Mark for organizing the day
