Today’s watercolor experiment:
In my wanderings around Manhattan in the 1990s I repeatedly came across a peculiar symbol, a five-pointed star. In today’s example this star was emblazoned on a warehouse door. It is the only non-text symbol present. The other adornments took the form of writing in white.
My version of the door consisted of a series of nested and adjacent rectangles. I opted for my own color scheme, making the door a lighter color than the original. This made it necessary to outline the white text graffiti with a fine-tip ink pen, so it would be visible to the viewer. I did not have to modify the circle and the star, which already had black borders.
In the next few days I will find the images of the star icon in other photos I’ve taken. It will be interesting to see the differences among the icons, both in terms of design and placement.
