Smithsonian Castle

castle130306.jpg
The weather on Friday evening was so beautiful that I took the opportunity to sit on a park bench at the Mall in D.C. and drew this picture of the Smithsonian Castle which was directly across the Mall from me. It was so wonderfull and refreshing to be outside in the slowly fading sunlight and I continued to draw until the light was almost completely gone. I am so looking forward to getting out more in the spring and summer and now that my commute takes me directly through D.C. I can just hope off the train and get some drawing time anytime I want.

  1. This is an unusual view of the castle. The tall, crenellated tower with the flag poles at the front of the building is off the left side of the page. It looks almost like a cathedral without it.
