Sketching on the SFMoMA | Sketch Away: Travels with my sketchbook


Sketching in museums means utilizing solely dry media. However with my Neocolor II crayons, I can get the wealthy coloration and mixing I would like with out water. (and if I wished to mix issues in a bit additional I’d run a moist brush or spritz over part of my sketch after my go to)

I sketched Diego Rivera’s unbelievable fresco, Pan American Unity, on the Roberts Household Gallery, (which is all the time free), at SFMoMA. I didn’t attempt to actually draw the mural. As an alternative, I captured the swirl of coloration and form within the monumental piece earlier than me and watched folks wanting on the artwork. Go see the mural if you’re within the metropolis. Sit on a bench, stare upon it and really feel its energy. 

The graphic energy of Robert Indiana‘s “LOVE” piece is wonderful. What I discover unbelievable is that it interprets throughout media and sizes: it really works as slightly 2-dimensional stamp design and as a big sculpture. Sketched over a espresso break after having spent a very good period of time with the Rivera fresco.

I like people-watching wherever and museums aren’t an exception. Olafur Eliasson’s “One-Approach Colour Tunnel” had folks queuing as much as stroll on the bridge via the tunnel.
