Charcoal Grey Tower

10x14 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. Big Surprise ! Another piece with lots of charcoal! Once again, I can't help myself. I wanted this to have an urban, warehouse look to it. Waterfront perhaps. Tell me what you think. I always love receiving your comments.

Hi Carol:
This has the urban warehouse feel you were looking for. I can visualize this piece hanging in an architect's office or developer's office.
Or a gorgeous, modern loft...
I really enjoy your mixed media work. Very inspirational.

Hi Kim,
Thanks for your comments. I enjoy your work as well. I really like your garlic - very nice. And your floral abstracts and still lifes are wonderful.I have worked hard over this past year to give some of my work a bit more of an edge with both line, composition and subject.
