Metropolitan Museum of Art

I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art and got lost immediately, it is vast and over whelming. After a nice lunch in their balcony cafe I visited the Oriental exhibit and there were many student classes and such artists sketching away - I did the same, I felt so Artsy - I chose a relatively simple marble sculpture "Seated Jain Tirthankara" from the 11 century, Very ZEN! Pencil, ink and watercolor wash in sketchbook

The Met is huge! I think one could stay for a week in NYC and go every day, all day and still not see everything in it. This sketch if very nice. I really like the colors you used. Glad you had a good time!
