CA Sketchcation, Santa Monica: "Seeing Art, Not Just Making it"

September 5, 2016

The next day of the trip began with the short drive to the greater Los Angeles area. Along the way I stopped at Mugu Lagoon Estuary for a warm-up sketch.




Then I decided to do some museums, since I knew I'd have limited time in LA. I visited the Getty Villa and the Getty Center. The Villa itself was beautiful, though early Roman artifacts aren't really my favorite thing to see. The Getty Center was more my speed. In a beautiful modern facility, the museum houses a wide variety of paintings, sculpture and photography. I perused a great touring exhibit "London Calling" which was a collaboration with the Tate museum in London, as well as the wings of everything after 1800. To be honest, for such a sprawling compound the rooms housing the exhibits are rather small. The whole museum can be seen in a few hours, I just decided to spend most of my time wandering the labyrinth-like garden and a little time sketching!
