Welcome to my blog! In this post I will be talking about my latest urban landscape painting. 

I remember as a kid going to The New Haven Public Library and becoming immersed in books. The library was valuable for school projects or if I just wanted to check out the latest Goosebumps book. This project is about capturing New Haven landmarks that are relevant to me and others. I kept the style very loose and used the watercolor tools to give the piece a sketchy look. Art created in Sketchbook Pro for iPad.
