There are two visual aspects in what I am posting this week. The first aspect being black and white presentations and the second aspect being architectural elements. Black and white, whether it be a photograph or a sketching changes the visual experience of a subject matter. Black and white allows more detail to surface as the visual experience isn’t bombarded with a multitude of colors, while keeping an overall subtle look.
I have always thought the architectural elements in New Orleans were appealing in their uniqueness and I think the black and white sketching technique highlights a lot of the detail that makes the area interesting (as a disclosure I created these drawings in 2010, so anything that has changed at any of these locations since then is not represented).
The first and second art prints are of the St Charles Line street car. The first print is a street scene of the street car line and the second print pulls in on a stop after a passenger gets off. The first one gives you a very detailed look of the tracks the street car runs on while the second one gives you more detail of the street car itself including remaining passengers.
The third print is a balcony restaurant looking out over the French Quarters. You not only see the detail of the restaurant seating, but the buildings in the French Quarter.
The last one looks across the street in the French Quarters at another balcony restaurant. This print captures the detail of the customers and the street aspect.
