Doggie and The Renwick

Quick puppy portrait, and a painting of part of the outside architecture of The Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian, for their anniversary postcard design competition. The actual text on the view I painted says “Dedicated To Art,” and the verdigris plaque has a bust in it, but I added the 40 and gallery name for the sake of the postcard design.

I used to hate painting architecture because it was too fussy and precise, but I’ve gotten a lot more comfortable with it over the past few years.
