Figure Drawing

Started drawing from a figure model and it seems the quick sketch poses are over before you even get started.

Executive Office Building part 2

Executive Office Building, Washington DC
I thought this might be a challenge to draw, and it was. Half way through I thought who is this crazy architect who I think used every architectural detail available to man at the time. Well, Alfred Mullett designed a lot of large buildings in this "Second Empire" style in different parts of the US at the end of the 19th century. He ran into trouble with people not liking them, some of the buildings being unsafe and over budget. He ended his life in litigation and suicide.
Mark Twain called it " the ugliest building in America". George W. Bush helped rededicate it as the Eisenhower Office Building.
