During the same trip to New Orleans that I mentioned in my earlier post on the New Orleans Victorian house, I came across this scene from a balcony across the street. If this doesn’t say New Orleans, I don’t know what does. I absolutely loved the look and feel of this scene. I have taken this scene and used it as a basis for an oil print and a watercolor. As I do with a lot of my photographs, I look at them in black and white to see what I get. I had the same result with this one as I did with the Victorian house. There was something there in the black and white, but just not enough depth for what I was envisioning. Doing this scene with a sketching technique brought out so many details and gave it added dimension. Even all these years later, this is one of my personal favorites in my sketching collection. Thoughts?
