Jefferson Memorial, Washington DC

I’m starting to work on a series of paintings of Washington, DC monuments… starting with this one of the Jefferson Memorial. Excuse the quality of the scan, my scanner seems to be creating a weird white box on the image…

This one was pretty complicated and took much longer than I anticipated, mostly due to the pink areas. But, overall, I think the colors worked well together.

Other DC monuments that are painting contenders: Washington Memorial, Capitol Building, Smithsonian Castle… I was considering the Lincoln, but I think the columns are too complicated and would not work well.
