As a photorealist painter, I am dependent on finding accurate reference materials for each painting. It is not always easy, but I’ve found the National Archives to be a treasure trove – especially for early photos of Washington. I especially enjoyed working out how to feature the gas lights. Although the Capitol dome was lighted by electricity in 1919, the lamps outside were gas, giving the whole scene a misty, moody glow.
