This is one of those sketches I wished I had started half an inch higher on my page.
This pelican is a guilded silver and gemstone urn, part of the Peru exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts. Quite spectacular in size and detail. This was my third sketch of the evening and my back was starting to hurt from the standing. I tried a more quicker sketch style – which brought to mind the style of David Gentleman. I love his London sketches!
Coloured at home.
