A Sketch and a Vatican Show

Here's the latest from my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project 2011. This one is done from a series of reference photos I shot last year. Hands are hard.

Elsewise, I’m enjoying this summer pretty well, all things considered, but I now have a new reason to not completely dread the approach of fall. One of the largest Vatican collections to ever tour North America is coming to my fair city! This October the Senator John Heinz History Center will host "Vatican Splendors: A Journey Through Faith and Art". Among other works of art, it will have original works by Michelangelo, Bernini, and Guercino. Should be really cool!
