Visited the Honolulu Academy of Arts yesterday to take a second look at the Hokusai exhibit, which I had gone to see earlier in the week. One of the things I like best about the Academy is the way it is laid out, with a number of small courtyards. I've been trying to get back into some kind of rhythm with drawing and writing, so I sat and sketched two views inside. The first one is not very convincing; the whole middle section with the columns doesn't represent well. But the second one has a little bounce to it, and comes close to capturing the combination of light and order that I find there.
