This sketch captures Chrysler Building on a hazy summer morning in New York. A gorgeous Art Deco building, and my absolute favorite skyscraper in the city. I sketched this looking up Lexington Avenue early one summer morning. This urban landscape was bathed in early morning light, in pinks, greens and lemon yellows. It was a very quiet morning by New York standards!
This is a print of my original sketch done with watercolor, pen and ink. The print is designed to float in a standard 8" x 10" frame with a thin white border. The actual image size is 7" x 9". Image #3 shows how it would look in an 8x10 frame. Printed on Archival Fine Art Paper. The colors of the actual print are richer and more vibrant than this web image. Each print is signed and carefully packed and shipped.

All my sketches are done on-site, from direct observation. The print you will receive is a high-resolution scan of the original and will show all it's natural imperfections (the blot of an inked-in line, a faintly drawn pencil sketch under the watercolor), all integral to the process.
