Wyeth Sketches

A couple days ago the class took a day trip up to Chadds Ford, PA to visit the Brandywine River Museum which exhibits works by the Wyeth family (N.C., Andrew, and Jamie being the most well-known), as well as other illustrators. It’s a great museum, but I definitely need to go back and spend more time there.

While I was there, I also took a tour of the Wyeth house and N.C. Wyeth’s studio. It was kind of cool seeing the house, but N.C.’s studio is AMAZING. Gigantic, gorgeous, north-facing windows, huge rooms, tons of props he used for his illustrations. The last paint palette he ever used is still sitting in there with paint on it, next to the last painting he was working on.

For the class we were supposed to do 3 sketches of works we saw while we were there. I didn’t have time to finish three; spent too much time on the first two and on the house/studio tour, but here’s what I got done:

Sketch of Andrew Wyeth’s “Night Shadow”:

Sketch of Andrew Wyeth’s “Anna Christina”:

…the Wyeth artists are all great, but Andrew’s definitely my favorite. I hope to go back there this summer and do more sketching. Less than a 2 hour drive from Baltimore!
