Old Post Office Pavilion

Long time no see! I finally made it out to the 42nd World Wide SketchCrawl at the Old Post Office Pavilion, and am posting my sketch from the tower, along with a photo of my view for comparison. I used an indigo blue colored pencil for this sketch instead of my normal pen and ink because I thought it fit with the overcast cold feeling of the day. It was really cold up there, so I did not get to finish the sketch, but did manage to fill in the Capitol building and some of the rooftops along the street.

Red Hoodie Cafe

Take a break. I remember it was around the convention center. Someone tried to get talkin bout politics and another was not havin it. Two more were all about getting paid. On the clock. Flirt with the females that went and came so quickly upon my vision field like birds.

Congressional Cemetery Sketchcrawl

Showers of rain drops dissolved the water based ink in this sketch. I liked the effect it had on the linesso I kept working through the shower.
Patrick Crowley took us on a tour of the cemetery including a look in one of the 150 year old vaults . That added so much to the experience to hear the history and see some of the hidden places. 

Fellow sketcher Robin M. seated among the graves. 

Two vaults recently restored still waiting for sod to cover the vaulted roofs. 

Public Vault had roses and sedum blooming and sat under a nice red Japanese Maple tree. Former first lady Dolley Madison rested here for five years while funds were raised to take her home to be buried with her family.  


First sketch was the wrought iron gate sign that was knocked down by a dump truck too large to pass under it's delicate iron arch.
