This week’s art is a sloppy watercolor/ink wash based on a blurry photo I took about ten days ago out of the window of our hotel in New York City.

We were on Eighth Avenue, hence the title. A block and a half to the left (or our side of the street) is Two Brothers Pizza. Four blocks to the right (also on our side of the street) is the Moyinahan Train Hall, where we get on the Cardinal to come home. All of which made our hotel room very handy, despite its tiny size. Basically, it was a king-sized bed, with nearly nine inches of floor space surrounding it.

This painting was done on paper for pens.  To start, I was using cheap watercolor brush pens, but then switched to traditional watercolors with a little bit of Winsor Newton inks in the mix. After a day of drying, I was able to scan it for use here.
