I forgot to share Monday’s post, where I cried over my running ink! Sketching from the Senate floor!
Like my earlier post on drawing the
Senate gallery details, I came around to draw the Senate from a different angle. I sat on the floor of the first entry arch looking up into one of the corners, in order to catch the overall arch and the large bronze Tiffany chandelier. The corner of the room intrigued me; the architects cut the edges of the square room
in an odd detail, making more angles to
draw on top of the arches and gallery.
The chandelier reminds me of a candelabra, and that may be what Tiffany intended to inspire. The state keeps the Senate incredibly dark. I hear stories of ghost wandering the Senate and can believe it! Perhaps when the Senate is in session the lights are not set low?
