Stanford Dish Palo Alto California - 8x10 print from an original watercolor sketch

Simply known as 'The Dish' at Stanford in Palo Alto is the huge radio telescope atop a hill with stunning views of the Bay Area. I hiked this trail on a blustery afternoon in early summer, and stopped to capture the dramatic dish that looms over an otherwise almost bucolic trail. Long shadows from the hikers seemed to point Eastward, just like the dish did.

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 #1 is a closeup of the piece, #2 shows the full piece and 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.
