ACEO City of Glass- Watercolour of City at Night with Pen and Ink



This is an ACEO which is a new size for me to work in- 3.5 by 2.5 inches! The tiny size makes detail a challenge, but it’s always nice to try something new.

This little painting/drawing is inspired by Paul Auster’s City of Glass, and also a little by the New York skyline. Working with grids can really add something new and interesting to a drawing.

This is the last abstract in colour I’ve done in this series, I’ve loved working in colour but now I’m tempted to do a few in monochrome, as orginally I had done a series about doors in black and white that kind of inspired these colour pieces. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
