Different strokes from Different Folks week 19-20


Another challenge from Karin Jurick at Different strokes from Different Folks her reference photo was a night time scene of the Jefferson Memorial. The challenge was posted just when we had a beautiful full moon at perigee. Every time I saw the reference photo I was reminded of the beautiful moon we were seeing and so the dome became the moon in my version of this challenge -
Watercolor 9" x 11"

Awesome!
I found the texture on the building top very interesting. And the diffused light lamps look nice too!

Really nice artwork!

Great idea, very sci-fi, futuristic with that element of ancient decay... one could read a lot into the moon dome. Lovely soft colors. Nicely done!

The book an Illustrated life, On Sketchcrawl here in San Diego I was drawing with one of the participants, Jane LaFazio. It was so much fun.

I wholeheartedly agree with Mad Bush Farm Crew that your work should be in a gallery. The colors in this piece are beautiful. I love the subject and your lunar addition.
