The Metropolitan Museum of Art has one of the largest collections of Asian art in the Western world. Last Friday night I participated in the drop in drawing session that took place in the Galleries for the Arts of South and Southeast Asia. The gallery that I worked in had sculptural objects from the Afghanistan in the 5th century. During this time one can see both eastern and Greek influences of art, religion and culture. There are Buddhist heads coexisting with Greek gods. The terracotta remnants has lost their color but with a little artistic license and inspiration I re-imagined them as fully realized watercolors. The museum only allows charcoal pencil in the galleries, and the watercolor was added later in the studio.
