Mitchell took great images of object details around the Legislative Building, and the torchére caught my eye. Not the same as painting in front of it, but fun nonetheless.
I began with a detailed sketch, and almost left it alone, but color is my thang so
I took the risk. I like the gentle washes and think they add to the page.
And the images these details came from:
Drawn in an Stillman & Birn Delta journal
with a Brown-Black Uni-ball pen and Daniel Smith / QoR watercolors.

Mighty and majestic! I like your drawings much better than the real thing on the wall because they are far more subtle. The wash is perfect 🙂 you rock!
PS torchere has always been one of my favorite words to say. Rolls off my tongue.
I love it too. MUCH better than “lamp” or even “luminaire” — it sounds like something mysterious! Thanks for the compliment.
