A Visit to the Museum

I spent Saturday at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and was fascinated with this gem by Rubens.  The brushwork and the sense of the individual were incredible.
Even though I also visited the Discovering the Impressionists Exhibition, the experience of viewing this small painting (about 12 x 15 inches) was the most memorable of all.
This has fed my passion for portraiture from life.

My museum sketch 11x14.  My apologies to Rubens.
