I've never considered myself an artist, although I have always liked to doodle and sketch, and I did take an art class in college. A few years ago Bill gave me s set of watercolor paints and I have been doodling with them a bit since then. I recently saw a watercolor on Pinterest that was a surrealist cityscape that was really interesting. I sketched and painted a copy of that to see what I could do with it.
It wasn't bad but I wasn't crazy about it, and I want to get away from copying other people's paintings and do my own. I used this picture that I took from the Empire State Building in NYC in March, and created my own painting of "My NYC".
It started with a sketch, then I filled it in with color.
I thought I would show you the progression
of my work on this piece. It was fun, but took
A long time. It is a little abstract, but I think that
way, believe it or not.
So what do you think? I debated about adding windows to all these buildings but I kind of like to think of them as being empty for some reason. Bill wants me to turn it into a needlework project. That could be interesting. Stay tuned...
