Ok, well maybe this is an exaggeration but I went to a museum called the Bargello today and found that I was able to draw the statues without a thought in my mind as to how long I had been drawing. A lot of the time I get antsy when drawing and start to scribble a lot. I think because these sculptures were so amazing I was much more patient… I could stare at these sculptures forever.
Here are my sketches for the day. This was so fun!
Giambologna e Pietro Francavilla, “Firenze Trionfa Su Pisa”:
Michelangelo Buonarroti, “David-Apollo”:
Vincenzo Gemito, “Il Pescatore”:
Pietro Francavilla, “Giasone”:
And just a couple of pictures. I wasn’t supposed to take pictures of the Michelangelos… I couldn’t resist.

Michelangelo Buonarroti’s “David-Apollo” (wish I would have gotten a better angle, this piece flowwwws… but I had to hide… haha):
