If you have visited the King county Courthouse lobby in Seattle, you will be familiar with Douglas Cooper's wonderful charcoal on paper on panel renderings of Seattle views. They were commissioned in 2001 and completed in 2005. Although a resident of Pittsburgh he finds a natural kinship with the hills, waterways and bridges of Seattle. When you think drawings you might imagine something more intimate. These drawings range from 3 x 4 feet to 4 x 8 feet and command attention both for the sweeping panoramas and the means used to draw them. He has been commissioned for large murals (up to 200 feet long) in Philadelphia, San Francisco, Frankfurt, New York, and Rome.
