These are examples of two city skyline portraits I have recently completed. Both images painted with watercolor paint, on Arches 140lb watercolor paper and have ink pen outlining the detail of the buildings. They measure approximately 10"x30".
The portraits are taken from my trips to Jersualem (old city) and Chicago. (beachfront) I love picking out the detail of all the different buildings and landmarks and painting them in a vibrant way.
I always prepare an ink pen sketch for a client prior to painting, in order to check layout and composition.
The final painting will be matted - usually to fit a standard sized frame.
