new sketchbook, old art

It was "free" day at the Dallas Museum of Art.  They actually have a  pretty nice collection.  I saw Van Goghs and Monets and Picassos and even a sculpture by Degas.  I didn't know he did sculpture. 

Mostly I looked but I did sketch two objets d'art.

A Greek funerary figure, c. 330 BC.  His casual pose would work better if he had hands and feet and a head.

Henry Moore's "Reclining Mother and Child" 1976.  It's a close call but I think he did better on the mother than on the child.
