A small group of drawers, sketchers, and painters got together this morning in Pasco, WA., to sketch, draw, paint the old Franklin County Courthouse. It was much like what a sketchcrawl would be, but we have yet to get a sketchcrawl group going - not too many of the others are online addicts like I am.
For someone who doesn't do much architecture, this was a fun sketch. I filled a couple of pages in my sketchbook, and decided this is the one that I wanted to post up. The building stretches left and right for about another 2/3rds. In other words, this sketch represents about 1/3 of the structure because I wanted to focus on the copper dome.
The building was remodeled two or three years ago and though it was very handsome before, it is even more so today.
