stone staircase

Saw this staircase through a doorway in the Capitol Visitors' Center in Austin this morning. The building was once the Texas General Land Office, and is substantial in a 19th-century medieval way. I loved the simplicity and scale of these stairs, and the relationships of all the shapes. Pencil and gouache - painted on the flight home.

I love this! Very striking shapes, and your use of color / value makes it even more so.

Wonderful architecture and your placement on the spine of the double page adds to the depth and excitement.
