Sketchbook: The Last Respects

We spent the last Sketching in the Galleries of June in the Reeves Collection. The assignment was to chose a drawing in this collection and copy it. I chose a drawing of Henri de Talouse-Lautrec entitled The Last Respects. The original was ink and gouache, and I copied it with a water soluble graphite pencil. I was reminded of Remington and Russell Drawings drawn pretty much contemporary in the Western USA with Talouse-Latrec in the France. I added page two to this drawing, with a band and mourning crowd reminiscent of a New Orleans wake.
