Adobe Ruins


It’s another beautiful sunny day here on the island, but oh my is it windy. Staying in and spending much time snuggling with my Yorkie “Cici”….(she just gets cuter with each passing day), I considered my next painting. As I briefly saw an adobe on some fast moving commercial (as most are), I thought, “That’s it!” I did have the advantage to be able to recall many I’ve seen in the southern Arizona Desert years ago. Somehow they are still fresh in my mind.

The watercolor painting is a remake of Carol King’s “Peruvian Street Scene, from her post “The End of the World?,”  that I was most eager to try my hand at; with the artists permission of course, thank you Carol King.

I’m very fascinated with Carol King’s style and her ability to keep things simple that speak volumes. I had already painted this once and could not quite put my finger on what was wrong with it, then realized that I had painted it in landscape view rather than in portrait view as you see it now. Other than a few details, some important, some not I feel well pleased with the results.

For those of you who do not know Carol and enjoy artworks posted with humor, then I recommend you visit Carol Kings Weblog.

It’s been awhile since I have been in the Southwest, but today my mind went their while the sky here was gray and cloudy. I got to thinking about those neat skies out there and the abandon desert shacks.

Charcoal drawing

This one is an old adobe I did it back in early 2008 reference from a photograph

Creating it I had practiced the Cotton Cloth Technique. on the stucco.

I used compressed charcoal to apply the leaves for the trees by blotting.

For the rest of the drawing I pretty much used charcoal pencil.
