Two Museums | Sketch Away: Travels with my sketchbook


This monumental piece is a component of Kehinde Wiley’s present “An Archaeology of Silence” on the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco. There may be a lot to say concerning the energy of the items and what they’re about. However I feel it’s a present to be skilled, not dissected into prolonged explanations. So this sketch is simply concerning the work’s scale and vibrancy. Watching individuals have a look at artwork in museums is at all times fascinating, and I’ve not often seen individuals pause in entrance of a chunk for so long as they did in entrance of this one.

Listed below are just a few photographs I took as I labored on it that allow you to peek into the way it was created. (full-color model completed at dwelling after preliminary line and wash on the museum)

These two fast sketches of a Koons and a Lichtenstein are at The Broad in Los Angeles. Pen and coloured pencil are all it took to stroll round and sketch.

What I really like about seeing artwork in museums (in addition to the apparent “it’s a lot better in actual life” bit) is that I get to take a look at it in two methods: as an artwork piece in itself and as part of an interplay with museum goers.
