End Of Day At The Dock – Featured Art Print

“End of Day at The Dock” is an art print I created using a traditional watercolor technique. This technique focuses on traditional colors and shading to create a soft warm print.

The setting is Victoria Harbour, British Columbia. The harbour is used as a seaport for aviation as well as for boats including ferry service, fishing and sail boating. This particular scene is directly in front of the Fairmont Empress Hotel, famous for it’s afternoon tea and Victorian ambiance.

What I like about this print is three-fold. I love the overall softness of colors, they create a warm comforting visual experience. The other aspect I like is the subject matter. There is something visually appealing about boats docked in a harbor (or harbour in this case) right after sunset when dusk settles in. The third aspect is the two visual focal points created by the lights on the dock by the boats. These focal points pull your eye in to see more detail.  Thoughts?

Soft Rose Bloom In Red And Purple – Featured Art Print

 

Soft Rose Bloom In Red And Purple is a wall art print I created using a soft watercolor technique. This technique creates defined lines that compliment a soft watercolor look. This print was just added to my Floral/Still life Gallery and was inspired by my photo shoot of rose blooms in the Arizona Territorial Rose Garden located on the grounds of the Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott, Arizona. Thoughts?

Abstract Towers and Sketched Towers – Featured Art Prints

Abstract Towers and Sketched Towers are wall art prints I created using an abstract watercolor technique of high-rise buildings. This technique uses abstract bold lines with traditional watercolor to create the image. This is a similar technique I used on the abstract art print Yellow and Purple which I featured a couple of weeks ago.

The perspective of these prints is looking up from street level. The setting is downtown Seattle, a vibrant and active center of urban life for both the locals and the many tourist that visit the city. Having exploded in growth over the last 20 years, Seattle has become a very trend setting and dynamic market. The downtown urban corridor reflects that flavor. The architecture of the buildings display a variety of styles and looks. The downtown skyline stretches across the waterfront of Elliot Bay from the Seattle Center (home of the Space Needle) to the north to the sports complex (home of the Seahawks “football”, Sounders “soccer” and Mariners “baseball”) to the south. Thoughts?

Yellow And Purple – Featured Art Print

 

“Yellow and Purple” This particular print is an abstract expression that I had fun creating by drawing the shapes and creating the colors in a very simplistic style. Both were created using a digital free hand drawing and painting technique. I think the end result presents a fun, colorful and clean contemporary design. Thoughts?
