Sketching at the National Cathedral

On Tuesday, I found myself with a few extra hours in Washington DC before a flight back to Minneapolis. It was perfect for a visit to the National Cathedral. Before heading inside to see the Space Window with its moon rock, I got in a sketch. I wrapped it up just as my waterbrush's water began to freeze.

Another visitor, Chris Branagan, asked to take a picture of me sketching, and I'm delighted that he shared the photos with me.

  1. Amber, I love your sketch, and loved seeing photos of you working! I'm glad it was a great visit.

  2. Lovely sketch Amber. Hope you got warm again afterwards.

    1. Thanks, Sue. Honestly, after 50 days of sub-zero weather in Minnesota, a little sun and 30 degree F felt really nice!
