At the Theatre

At the Theatre

7″x9″, pen and watercolour

This is my watercolour version of  artist Paul Citroen’s 1929 photograph titled “At the Theatre.”  I came across an image of it online and was compelled to find out more about it.

Paul Citroen was a German-born, Dutch artist, who was once part of the Bauhaus faculty.

Cherry Beach Rock

pencil, watercolour, pen & ink, 5″ x 8″

I came across this “rock” while I was walking along Cherry Beach one summer.  It may have even been rubble from an old industrial building formerly located where I had been standing.  Or maybe it was part of an old dock?

9″ x 12″, watercolour, pen & ink

This warehouse was spotted near Cherry Beach one summer many years ago.  I liked how the warehouse was so stark and linear and how the trees visually divided it.

Pink Grapefruit Slices

pink grapefruit slices

pencil, watercolour, 7″ x 9″

These two (2) slices of pink grapefruit were surprisingly difficult for me to sketch. It was a challenge trying to capture the cells of the fruit and the membrane in between.  Not to mention the subtle colour changes in the pith and peel.  Anyway, it was good to give it a go.  The end result is a bit cartoony, but I’m happy that I’ve finally finished it.
