Two watercolors by architects. I have recently purchased these two paintings by relatively unknown architects. I love the artwork produced by architects because their draftsmanship and attention to detail is non pareil. Pardon me but both pictures were taken through glass and there is some glare.
It depicts a pier in San Luis Bay, Avila Beach that is no longer extant.
This is a classical way to paint watercolor, from the school of Sheets, Kosa and Phil Dyke.
I love the perspective on the small figures in the distance and the way he uses the large pier silhouette in full shadow compositionally.
Notice the bleed in the shadowed structure. Difficult to do and perfect.
Work from this artist is scarce but everything I have seen has a wonderful clean and modern feeling.
