The Hebrew University has a huge Henry Moore bronze statue, “Draped Seated Woman,” on its lawn. It is angular, somewhat abstract and totally commanding. Besides being beautiful, it never gets up and walks away in the middle of a sketch.
I sketched this stature several times lately as part of the work I am doing on conveying the look of stone. I am beginning to catch on to showing the sheen of the bronze and of the stone the figure is mounted on.
This is a pen and watercolor sketch on multimedia paper.
