The Power of Masks

japanese masks 2

I made my second visit to “Becoming Another:  The Power of Masks” at the Rubin Museum yesterday.  I sketched some more of the Japanese masks  (I previously posted one that I sketched from my first visit in March:  https://methodtwomadness.wordpress.com/2015/03/15/otafuku/).  This time I sketched with an ink marker, rather than pencil.  Different effect.

For contrast, here are some more of the sketches from my first visit.

This is not a large exhibit, but there are still many masks I’d like to go back and draw.  It’s there until next February, so there’s time.
