one of our assignments in our wild art 2 class was to do a skyline of where we lived, so i choose san diego. i loved the way that junelle hallstrom jacobsen (one of our instructors, www.yesandamen.blogspot.com) did her new york buildings in the mono color, so i knew that i wanted to go with the black and white. my dilemma was that i loved the colors reflecting on the water. so i did half and half! i used crackle paint for the sky, paper pieced the buildings, acrylic-ed the hearts and accents on the buildings and then put watercolor paper for the water and then did wet into wet.
i am pretty happy with the results. i am going to do some on canvas and see if i can get them into some of the shops in san diego :)!
