I love going to fine art museums and looking at the classical statues. I think sculpture is maybe a more forgiving medium because nearly all the sculptures are so beautiful (though not all the paintings always are). This is an absolutely brilliant statue in the New York Museum of Art called "Ugolino and his sons" by Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux. I also love the fact that there is an intriguing story that you want to know after you see the sculpture. This is a pencil sketch from my sketchbook.
