a roof near the creek

Overlapping two different times happening in the same place.

There was a large pavilion near the site of another subject (big rock) that I was working on using a fairly representational style. After finishing the big rock base drawing, I did a fast and loose rending of the pavilion. A few days later I’d done two new drawings of an imagined scene there, trying to show it both at peace and in the middle of a flood, with the overlapping linework giving the whole thing a desperate mood. Chose the second of these two to use as the base of the finished work shown here.

9.75 x 13 inches, watercolor pencil on ink original, 2019. Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi color print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, in a limited edition run of fifty. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
