I sketched this abandoned railroad crossing in the Five Wounds neighborhood of San Jose, California. Golden afternoon warmed up the cold metal crossing sign. Weeds grew underfoot and a railroad track ran straight as an arrow all the way to the horizon.
This is a print of my original sketch done with watercolor, pen and ink. The print is designed to fit a standard 8" x 10" frame. 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.
