Plein-air pen and wash on paper

The Modern

1 Comment


The Modern Cafe, is a prominent restaurant in downtown. A few days ago the early morning sun painted this row of buildings in an attractive looking light, begging to be photographed.

Today, however, we had a grey sky that dropped this awful white stuff on us in generous quantities: a good enough excuse to hide inside and make a picture using photographs.

This shows my drawing and subsequent watercolor painting. If I would do this again, I would leave some more light areas with warmer colours in the foreground.
