DC inspiration - Jefferson Memorial

A quick study of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC.  This was done in pen and ink, and minimal shading with graphite pencil (4B).  What started out as a freehand quick study got a little bit more detailed, but I completed it in a short time (under an hour total).

Washington, DC is a great place with lots of history, arts and architecture.  Every street in downtown has a gem to offer: from great architecture to statues.  I have started making some sketches based on what I saw in DC during the trip this summer.  This is the first in the series.
