Today’s watercolor experiment:
I must have been focused on graffiti during my walk to Adorama back in 1991 (see yesterday’s sketch: Graffiti for Rent), or graffiti was so ubiquitous then, one couldn’t avoid it. A few frames later on my roll of film, I found a photograph of a bit of graffiti on a store window. I think the attraction for me was the cast iron column and the car in the middle ground.
The graffiti message, which I decoded as “Naughty for Love” was a factor as well. I love signs.
Here is the photograph:
The colors in the photo are washed out. Color correction is an option, but I like the cast of nostalgia it conveys. The odd thing about the pairing of these images is the modern look of the watercolor and the aged look of the photo.
