The Flatiron Building: an Illustration
Sometimes when you're strapped for time, but have your sketching stuff and golden hour is hitting the Flatiron Building juuuuust right, you have to stop and sketch it. It's basically a law. You may have noticed, it's one of my favorite things to paint in Manhattan (see "related posts").
I realized very early on I didn't have my pencil with me, so I had to go direct to watercolor which I appreciate as a challenge but in actual practice really don't care for. Here it worked out since I wanted to be quick anyway, so I went for a more illustrative style than my usual. I also just ignored the sky and left it to the buildings.
