back yard

Revisited an old idea I first had back in school.

Did this improvisational rendering of a site I’d been revisiting over the past year and liked the result enough to augment it with some color later. I remember first trying this style way back in college and listening to a self-described punk-rock type trash it for being too messy during a critique session. I wish I had not taken that advice to heart as much as I did, as I think it could have led to some decent work. So I guess I’m saying don’t be afraid to take your improvisation seriously.

10 x 13 inches, watercolor pencil on printed copy of fountain pen original done on-site, 2019. Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi color print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, part of a limited run of fifty. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP ink which meets the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
