Samurai Armor at the Pointe-à-Callière

This winter the Pointe-à-Callière (Montreal Museum of Archaeology and
History) has been hosting Dr. Richard Béliveau’s collection of Samurai
Armor. This is fascinating stuff to draw. Each one of these sets of
armor calls on masters skill in metalwork, embroidery, fabric dyes,
wood work, scrimshaw.


so much complex artistry in these artifacts. They really call for
sustained drawings. I’d love to have a month to paint one of
these….Perhaps. Perhaps I will. More on that later.
