The White House

Done at night, on location, from the South Lawn Fence.  (10 minutes)

Ballpoint Pen and Water (sketchbook)

Comments
This one was really fun.  The sketch stayed really loose and still managed to capture some of the feeling of how the building was lit, etc.

I was chatting with one of the uniformed Secret Service officers, discussing what the job is like.  Really interesting guy.   He was pointing out some of the security measures in place and describing the logistics of traveling with the President.

One of my favorite drawings from the week.
