Slice 'o Steeple

Belonging to the First Baptist Church in America, founded in 1636 by that troublemaker Roger Williams, this particular church was built in 1775. It is based on an engraving of the Marylebone Chapel by James Gibbs. Topping out at 185 feet, the steeple seems quite happy to see me.

  1. Bill; I found your site thru Steve Mouzon and really like your sketches. Do you think you could make a post sometime where you talk about materials and methods, like what type of pen you prefer or watercolor paper etc..?

    Also, that Urban Sketchers site is amazing. Thanks for having that link.
