This is a special project based on the Drawing Dublin project I made recently.
I thought about drawing another capital city and I wanted to draw old buildings especially.
I have never been to Washington and never been to the United States at all but I thought about Washington as I had heard about it and about how I should 'draw' it.
So I looked up on google map for a list of pictures of famous places, landmarks and buildings from Washington and I was surprised by how many old historic buildings there were.
I made a selection of 21 pictures that I decided that I would draw. It took me hours to draw all these everyday for a couple of weeks.
Drawing Washington was a challenge for me and I am happy I reached my goal. I am surprised by the results. I could not think I would achieve it. It makes me think that after that I could draw anything really :-)
Now that I have drawn Washington, it makes me want to go there and see all these buildings that are now familiar to me in real. It's strange, as even though I have never been there I feel like I now have. :-)
These drawings are made with colouring pencils and black pens and bic pens on paper size A6.
I hope people who are from Washington or who are familiar with this city and you also who is less familiar with it will like these drawings. :-)
