Very nice perspective. I love the "shine" on the floor.

For the first time, I joined the 30th SketchCrawl in DC and spent a couple hours on a drawing of the interior of the Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress.

It was a little too cold for most of us to do any outdoor sketching, but there were a lot of subjects in the Library of Congress. The Great Hall in the Jefferson Building has art on nearly every surface, so we had no trouble finding things to sketch.

Some images from smaller alcoves:

And the obligatory Metro sketch on the way there:

A cold day, but a fun one.

Super sketches everyone!

Doug, your sketch of the Library of Congress is wonderful. Great job on the perspective, and the nice clean lines.

Nice to see your sketch from LOC in the forum. Hope you will post it on the facebook page and maybe later on the Urban Sketchers DC pages as well!

I love these indoor sketches, all of your different "takes" on the subject matter! Really wonderful drawings!
