Travels in southern Spain opened my eyes to the Moorish influence on European architectural styles. Brilliant tiles, intricate carved details and open expanses in the buildings can only inspire. With elements from the natural surroundings and their relationship to the architecture this print tries to capture the culture of Spain.
Multiple photos and hand drawn elements are used in each print, depending on the subject and complexity of the image. Individual elements are carefully extracted from the original photo, manipulated, stripped to its basic line form to be combined with other elements to create the final image. The result has the illusion of being an etching or lithograph.
Dimensions: 9"x12" image on 12"x15" 230 gsm watercolor stock; created with archival inks
