Foldable Chair, Sketch 090

Sketch of the foldable chair

A straight-on view is not such a good one for sketching. That’s not what I had in mind when I photographed the chair. The Samurai exhibit allowed photos without flash. I used a high ISO, which meant a slow shutter speed, which led to blurry photos as I could not keep the camera steady enough for a clear image. This chair photo is about the only exhibit photo I took that wasn’t blurry.
