While living in NYC, I spent a lot of time sketching the people, streets, and buildings. Rooftops was a favorite subject-the tops of buildings had magnificent abstract layouts. The NYC Rooftop 1
was part of a large series of mixed media. Starting from my sketchbooks to larger drawing paper I redrew the composition in marker and finished the artwork with Nu-pastel over the marker. Subtle color gave a distinct look to this drawing series.
