"Grill and Tower"

Original Dark Roast Watercolor™ painting:
Using Folgers® Black Silk™ and illy® coffee


Interesting architecture has always grabbed my attention. It may be due to my fascination with lines and negative space or possibly because I have always sought out the nooks and cranys of areas, or an "avant garde" vantage point to see what missed things I can discover. Couple that interest with a love and respect of reflections and you get this painting. I wanted to capture and mesh the distinctive curved lines and reflections of the vintage Cadillac with the strong vertical lines and form of the hotel tower.


Having lived in Celebration, Florida for 10 years, the town will always hold a special place in our hearts. I have painted a few different view's of the Kessler Collection, Grand Bohemian Hotel Celebration but was able to get this view after the new marquee was finished.
