During my time in London the British Museum was one of my favorite haunts. I visited at least five times and during my last visit I did some sketching in the galleries devoted to Greek art. The museum has one of the world’s great collections and the galleries also have seating where I could be out of the way to sketch. 

I sketched this massive horse from the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus

and this Nereid from the Nereid Monument at Xanthos. During this rainy, cold weather we’ve been having, I wish I was there again pencil in hand.
