Today’s art is another look at Manhattan, inspired by a recent whirlwind trip to The Big Apple.
This week is a really quick, sloppy rough watercolor of what I think is the New York Times building. It was a bit of an oppressive presence leaning over our right shoulders as we gazed out on our panoramic view of New York City from within the famed skyline.
I mean, we were on the 44th floor, and that giant lummox of a building was just looming over us, standing in our way of having a clear view of everything.
Still, I can’t stay mad at it. After all, that’s where they keep all the Wordle.
This was done in watercolor and cheap markers that bleed too much. of course I also used a straight-edge and photo reference. The painting itself is rather tiny, so if you click the link below on a computer screen you’ll probably see it larger than actual size. This is a study that I may revisit someday on a larger canvas.
