Grant Memorial, Washington D.C.
In honor of today's vote, I give you the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial. This was going to be such a great one, but this freezing wind began whipping at me and after twenty minutes or so, I gave up and ran for the shelter of the Capitol building, (just as many Congressional hopefuls are doing today). Does give an idea of how I begin these iPad sketches--do the sky on my BKG layer, then sketch in the figure and begin building him up--just like in painting, only without that great linseed smell (there must be an ap for that, right? "iOdor'?).

We're home now, so this might be my last D.C./Virginia post.
