de Young Museum

I missed out on Sketchcrawl #7, when the San Francisco group visited the de Young Museum in the Golden Gate Park. I finally had a chance to check it out over the weekend and saw all the amazing African masks and Guatemalan artifacts. There's even a wall dedicated to the history of "etching". Such an interesting process. Here's a couple of masks I was able color up. I'll post more soon.

"Skull of reliquary"
19th century human skull,
shell, cloth and rattan.
(from the Gulf of Papay)


"Head of diety"
(from Guatamala) made of Jadeite.

Hey there Gerald!

These are terrific. I love the water colour look. We've been a museum going too, and finding much inspiration.

Are these done in a Fabriano sketch book? They're beauties!
