After lunch at the Metropolitan Museum of Art we moved to the American Wing which is filled with light and gorgeous sculptures. This was part of a fireplace mantle that originally dominated the entrance hall in the Vanderbilt Mansion on 5th Avenue. It was sculpted by Augustus Saint-Gardens. There is a matching piece on the other side of the mantle. I liked this side better. I used my watercolor pencils for this.
Next I did a free-standing sculpture. I used my watercolor pencil and started to use my ink brush, only to be told by the guard that I could use "pencils only." I had to finish the ink when we all met downstairs in the cafe. I included some of the background of the room and a few Met visitors.
