Minneapolis Skyline #594A pen & ink watercolor with JPEG scans.
This watercolor uses pen & ink as well as color wash to make the work of art. The pen & ink give the necessary delineation to the subject so that all the fine detail can be seen. I have chosen to paint the picture from the Dayton River, which has a rail road truss crossing over it. The trees make a soft touch to the painting with the mighty skyscrapers standing behind.
I have made a special point of making sure to keep the line work to a minimum so as to let the watercolor work to its maximum strength. Cross-hatching has been applied where the shadows are needed but otherwise I used color to secure the tone. The lines never at any time becomes dominant, they are a support to the brush strokes. The elegance of the skyscrapers comes through with the light of the afternoon sun. This is truly a beautiful city and one that I am proud to paint.
