The Statue of David 
(Accademia, Florence)

Done on location in the Accademia. (about 30 minutes) 

Ballpoint pen on watercolor paper

Comments
The "real" David, is in a wonderful setting, with perfect diffused lighting.  

One thing I learned on this trip was when sketching, work from the bottom up...otherwise, just when you're getting to the base of the sculpture/picture, a tour group will show up and the guide will position the group right in front of you to give a lecture.  

No funny pictures with this one, but I have included one shot showing how nice it looks in situ. See them here.
