Instead of depending on a 1" square cut from another picture, for today's drawing I was inspired by a visit to the Renwick's "Wonder" exhibit ~ a collection of amazing works that truly represent the concept of the show's title. This composition came to me spontaneously in reaction to the experience.
One of the most fun parts of the visit was watching all the people in the museum responding and interacting with the artwork. Photos were encouraged - lots of selfies with the massive pieces of sculpture. I think I enjoyed it even more because of the crowd, which made the exhibit sing.
This colored pencil drawing is 3.5" square. No white showing (except for those little circles), very opaque, dense color. That's how I like it! Some areas are layered with more than one color. Some colors bleed into each other.
