Natural History Museum
I did a second drawing at the Museum of Natural History. The rooms with the dioramas are purposely kept very dark. Each diorama is lit up dramatically to give a gorgeous effect. This is all well and good except if you are drawing, you must do so in the dark. Next time I will bring my little strap on headlight. Kids will love seeing that. Plus I'll look like an idiot. I went to the museum on a holiday, so it was packed with people. Now I know the trick is to take a day off and go during the week when it is emptier. Now I have a plan of attack. It's a perfect indoor setting for drawing, now that winter has set in.
