Sketches from the RISD Museum Prints, Drawings and Photographs

From an incredible class visit to Prints Drawings and Photographs in the Siskind/Minskoff Center where they pulled a group of works on paper from the collection for us, with a focus on small, loose and sketchy. After our appointment we added color to some of our sketches at tables in the lobby.

After Caillebotte, Fruit Displayed on a Stand, about 1881

After Caillbotte at the MFA in Boston.  A study of figs and berries from his mesmerizing  Fruit Displayed on a Stand, about 1881-1882 .  I sketched them with pencil and added watercolor on the ride home and later at my kitchen table.
