An unexpected lesson!

The National Toy and Miniature Museum in Kansas City recently re-opened after a year-long renovation.  Our sketch group met there and spent the morning sketching.  We had to restrict ourselves to pencil only, like in most museums, and my first thought was how much I need color to do justice to all the new, bright displays!

But a funny thing happened as I drew:  I had to pay a lot closer attention to my line weights and shading in order to capture what I saw.  I had planned to add color later, but changed my mind and decided to leave the pencil work as is.  Once again, I found that everything is an opportunity to learn!


  1. graphite has it's very own charm doesn't it? definitely on these pages.

  2. Beautiful sketches of the floral motifs!
