Something Different

Royal Dane Mall SThomVI-wWhile most of my sketches and paintings are fairly light in look and touch, this one takes a different direction. It’s inspired by the contrasting light and shadow in the alley way in Charlotte Amalie, St Thomas USVI. I worked hard to create the darks in this painting of the Royal Dane Mall, but when the brushwork was done it still lacked something. So I grabbed the chisel point Pigma black ink pen and went to work.

I’m pretty happy with the lively result and thinking I might take this approach again. Hope you enjoy the image.
