Although I have a large sketchbook that gets quite a bit of use, many times I don't have it with me because of its size. So I bought a pocket-sized sketchbook so that I will always have something on hand to sketch in. Here is the first sketch that I did during lunch, looking out of my office window on the lightly snow covered rooftops of the Sumner School in DC. It is a Romanesque Revival building designed by Washington architect Adolf Cluss, a task for which he received a design award at the 1873 Vienna Exposition. The school opened in 1872.
