I went in to SAM (Seattle Art Museum) to see the “Treasures of Kenwood House, London” before it ends on 19 May. I was pleased to learn the exhibit’s audio guide was available as an app. With the Museum’s wi-fi I downloaded both it and the regular museum audio guide.
I took about 2 hours to go through. Much of this is not my favorite period but I did want to see the Rembrandt.
I have a bit of a motivation distraction lately so I didn’t do any sketches at the Museum or outside. This month’s Seattle Urban Sketchers Sketch outing together will be a Pike’s Market so I didn’t want to sketch around the area, though there certainly is a plethora of subjects. I didn’t really plan this as a sketch outing, anyway, as I brought my most minimal kit. I also wimped out as it was unexpectedly chilly with breeze off the Sound. Once I got home it was nearly too warm outside.
I did still do two small sketches in my pocket Moleskine. First was on the bus to the light rail station.
The second was a woman at the next table at lunch. Her conversation was much too easily overheard (as a friend says, “voice activated listening”) and I think I practically know her life story.
Ink drawing on location and added watercolor at home.
