Benedicte and I went up to the Frick for the last session of Wednesday Night Sketch until it begins again in the Fall. Benedicte copied the Vermeer I sketched some months ago and I chose the other one on the same wall. I copied only a small part of the masterpiece and stopped when I got to the areas that were too dark for me to distinguish. There was no sense in setting off the alarm each time I tried to get close enough to make out details.

Sketched from direct observation. Color added later at home referring to a photograph from the Frick’s website. Photography was not permitted.
Gridded notebook and Pencil/Pitt fine pen, photographed using iPad and then imported into Sketch Club for color (ArtRage used for texture only). iPad; New Trent Arcadia stylus.
