Cincinnati City Hall Sketch

I had a great time on the fourth of July sketching with my dad.  I have been pestering him for a while now to go with me and we finally made it happen last weekend.  We wanted to go to Findlay market so I picked Cincinnati's City Hall because it was close.  After we sat down and started sketching we both realized that this was no easy building to sketch.  Whoever the architect was, they must have been mad or brilliant or both!  There are unusual jut-outs and the number of windows groupings changes all over the place.  If you have never seen this building in person it is well worth a trip downtown.

When we got back to the house we put on some nice music and inked and colored our sketches on the back porch.  I think my dad enjoyed it and I thought his sketch turned out awesome!  I love his bold colors and lines.  Hopefully this will be the first of many sketching outings with Poppy.
