The Getty in LA had a Sketching Gallery. I suggested going there because I wanted to watch others draw, but no other visitors were around when we arrived, so I ended up doing a sketch myself. I hadn't done any drawing in quite a while, and the time I spent sketching the bust's eyes was sheer bliss. It was the first time ever I sketched a plaster cast. It made me feel like an art student. The eyes of the plaster figure belonged to Adélaïde Julie Mirleau de Neuville. The eyes in the sketch are probably more mine than hers.
