Sketchcrawl: Smithsonian

I met up with the DC Urban Sketchers group on the day after Christmas to do a little drawing at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. We met by the elephant in the foyer, drew that, then split up for an hour or so. I visited the T. Rex and the mammals hall briefly – an hour isn’t as much time to draw as I thought! Ordinarily I would have scanned in each page separately but I liked how this spread looked across both pages:

After lunch, I set off on my own to the National Gallery of Art to draw a few statues. This possibly Milanese helmet is the only drawing I care to share, though. The others turned out…not so great.
