Original Dark Roast Watercolor™ painting:
Using PILON® and Cafe Bustelo® Coffee


I have had a number of people ask if I would spend some time painting some of the art deco district in Miami. And having always enjoyed that period or architecture it seems only natural.  The "Breakwater" is another one of the many fascinating hotels in the south beach area.


I was able to get the angle I wanted by carefully laying in the street with my head precious close to traffic, but protected by a rather warm Harley Davidson that had just parked. Even though it was fairly early in the morning, there was still plenty of people who seemed a little curious as to why this guy was laying in the street with his camera. I thought; "Hey, breakfast and a comedy act, what could be better"  They were probably just thinking, "Well, after all... it is Miami."
