Sketching in The Galleries

Every few months the Yale University Art Gallery hosts a fun drawing event in one of it's galleries. The last time I attended it was in the sculpture garden. The first was in the modern art gallery. Yesterday it was in the ancient art gallery. I loved doodling the sculptures and arches and getting tips and encouragement from the Yale art school students and staff. Hope to see you at the next one!

Lunch Break Spot

One of my regular lunch spots in New Haven (weather permitting) is the courtyard at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. First I go to my favorite food truck across the street and get Ethiopian food at Lalibela then head over to one of the benches or sit by the koi pond. On the day I drew this picture there were several students congregated around the pond so it gave me a chance to draw the pond from a distance.
