Our second class found us at the Harvard Museum Of Natural History's glass flowers collection. If you haven't seen it, put it on your list. I have been a few times and still have a hard time convincing my brain that the intricate, delicate, accurate sculptures are glass and were created with the most primitive of tools in the late 1800s/early 1900s. Incredible. (Note if you're going to draw - the lighting is TERRIBLE. It's great for preserving ye olden plant models but horrid for drawing. Good luck!)
I drew the Western Star Flower model...
And here's my lemon from last week...
Class was mostly free-range at the museum so I think next week should be the first class that feels like a full class. I can't wait.
[I also need to remember to go back to the Harv. Museum to draw some of the animals there - who are all lit in a more drawing-friendly way.]
Look how shocked this little shark was!
After class I walked to Somerville and met up with Megan. We had delicious lunch at Bloc 11 (which I miss so very much) and talked about art. Tuesdays are my new favorite for sure.
