Don Quixote by arterie Don Quixote by arterie
Another image from the past,...done in the early 80's, I was always carrying my drawing board around with me and box of colored pastels, loved to walk around Golden Gate Park here in San Francisco. There are many bronze statues there. This one is in the area around the DeYoung museum and Steinhart Aquarium.

These were crusty old statues of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza looking up at a bust of Cervantes. I climbed up on the rock they're mounted to and did this quick sketch from an angle the public doesn't normally see. Colored pastel on black cover stock.

Cervantes' creations live on in Don Quixote by arterie. I absolutely love everything by this amazing artist. I read Don Quixote and studied Cervantes a few years back so I can appreciate this piece on many levels. I hope you can too. (Selected by $matteo) ( Featured by matteo )
