Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes (or G, for short!)'s allegorical portrait of a Spanish aristocratic boy. I didn't get everything right... the head is too large and the eyes are too large and the hair has the wrong angle. But I nailed two of the cats and sone aspects of his costume. All in all I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out.

The naive cruelty and innocent disdain in this painting is so incredible. I believe it's the only Goya at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (but it might be hanging out in the room with the minotaur!). They also have the most incredible Jackson Pollock. Maybe I'll try that next!!! Although I'd have to use molten pencil to fling at my sketchbook...

There was a gaggle of kids all drawing at The Met. It made me really happy. A bunch came over and watched me draw, but most didn't speak English so I had no idea what they were saying. Hopefully nice things... !

Next Thursday, if you want to come just let me know!!!
