Chicago Theaters Series
Ink and Watercolor on paper
12" x 12" x 1" (20" x 20" framed and matted)
My love for music, movies and the city of Chicago inspired my theater collection. I hope you can appreciate the detail, color selection and perspective work on the piece.
The Aragon Ballroom is a Theater located at West Lawrence Avenue, approximately 5 miles north of downtown, Chicago; in the Uptown neighborhood. My neighborhood! For many years I worked with acrylics on canvas, but this year I decided to learn another medium. I chose black carbon ink with watercolors. I think it was fun and unique. The black ink allows me to add lots of detail and the watercolor brings in the warmth and looseness. I like the two different mediums together. The balance themselves out.
