On Friday we, Shirley, Benedicte and I, spent a couple of hours at the wonderful “Alexei Jawlensky” exhibit. As is our habit a good chunk of that time was spent copying. I was able to complete my painting of one of his “Helene” portraits entirely while we were in the gallery. The noise from our growling stomachs was deafening – it’s a wonder we weren’t tossed out.

As we were working our way down Madison Avenue last Friday we stopped in Gagosian to see Picasso’s Picasso’s. The three of us stayed there for awhile sketching.

I would have liked to have copied a Diebenkorn (all of them) but at that point my feet needed me off of them so a gallery with a bench was required. I did the drawing while standing in front of the painting and then added color while sitting quite a distance away. I had to do major surgery on the color when I arrived home though. Too orange. The lighting in the exhibition was very good but there must have been a color shift away from flesh/pink to orange. Does that make sense? I referred to an on-line photo to tweak the color.

While I was at the Matisse/Diebenkorn exhibition in The Baltimore Museum of Art last Wednesday, I took advantage of a thinning of the noon ticketed crowd, sat on a bench (the feet were happy), and copied a painting.

One Friday Benedicte, her cousin Barbara from France, Shirley and I spent time in The Morgan Library with grins all over our faces. The Dubuffet drawings exhibit surpassed our expectations and we spent quite a lot of time drawing. Our universal reaction to the nude cyclist was a resounding “OUCH”.

We calmed down by copying some of his portraits of friends.

I walked back to the other side of the Gap Stow Bridge where there was a spectacular view and did my best in my gridded notebook.

At lunch joy collaged and I sketched her doing it. The wind was stronger – it was very entertaining.

I didn’t want to sit in the sunshine so I sat where I had a view of the sketchers who had a view of the Gap Stow Bridge. There was awful bagpipe music coming from somewhere. I changed the colors of two shirts from white to something else. Artistic license.
