Woman at a Window



Sketch from yesterday, at the National Gallery of Art. It’s of a woman in a Spanish painting.

 The Original:

Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (artist)
Spanish, 1617 – 1682
Two Women at a Window, c. 1655/1660
oil on canvas

As I worked, I had a sudden, shocking moment where I looked at my sketch and thought I was looking in a mirror. I didn’t realize when I started, but I this woman looks a lot like me!

  1. That is what I thought, she looks like you.

    • Funny how it took me so long to see it! I guess you’re just not looking for yourself when you’re looking at paintings in a gallery.
