notes from a visit to the Whitney Museum

last weekend I saw an amazing thesis show at Yale School of Art. This sketch is of a photo by David Soffa. The original shows a tree wrapped in black plastic bags and surrounded by spotlights. I tried to capture the light on the plastic. This isn't the best sketch but will serve as a reminder to me of David's work.
