Side Door Graffiti

Today’s watercolor experiment:

Today’s composition is more of a study in color and texture than an example of graffiti. I liked the greenish panel with the yellow block-letter ‘X’  (the name of the bar) in juxtaposition with the yellow door with blue and green printing. I tried to give a sense of grunge to this portrait of the side door, and I was successful.

Watercolor: Block Letter Graffiti on Side Door of X. Bar

Side Door, Block-Letter Graffiti
6″x4″ 140# Mixed Media Paper

The top of the intersection of the door and side panel is in shadow. Everything about this entrance, if indeed it is an entrance, is uninviting. Even the door handle. This is a mysterious place.

Perhaps the photo below, which includes more information, dispels some of the mystery. But it doesn’t improve the atmosphere.

Maybe there is more appeal when Bar X. is open, especially on Saturdays.
