I have been having a great time inking and painting small-scale architectural sketches of interesting buildings I photographed during my walks around New York City (Sea Food Building, The Beer and Soda Building, Clock Building, Studio School Building).
Today’s watercolor experiment:
The photograph of the storefront below inspired me to make a transition from my representational building sketches back to the abstract paintings.
The red panel caught my eye. The geometry of the rest of the storefront reminded me (rightly or wrongly) of Mondrian.
I painted the essential landmarks of the photograph to create today’s study. The photograph and the painting have the same visual elements. I wonder if an observer, not seeing the reference photograph, would think of a storefront.
