Watercolor Sketches: Fantasy on a Coney Island Mural (2023)

I took a series of photos on the Coney Island boardwalk in 1991 (Atlantis, Coney Island, NYC, Mural for Young and Old, and Lonely in Winter). It seems that I forgot to post the photo on which these watercolors are based on. I started these sketches well over a year ago on a 14×20″ watercolor […]
