I met Claudette this morning for a sketching session at the Musée d’Amerique Francophonie. I want to say this is a tiny museum but it’s actually a fairly big building/facility. They just don’t have much in it 🙂 But there were a couple pieces that Claudette wanted to sketch so that’s where we went this morning.
I wandered around, looking for something to sketch. We’ve done group sketching events there on several occasions so I was very familiar with the displays. So, after wandering a bit, I finally settled on a statue (former mayor I think) as my subject. Since we’ve been discussing pencil drawing in one of the Facebook groups, and since I know nothing of pencil drawing except that I tend to smear everything I draw, I decided to do this sketch with an HB mechanical pencil. Definitely a KISS principle drawing. It’s also a sketch that demonstrates why I use my fountain pens (grin). It was done on a light gray Canson Mi-Teintes (6×9).
