Abandoned shop, Houston Texas

4101LyonsSt

Ink and watercolor, 9″ x 12″

I sketched this abandoned shop in Houston’s Fifth Ward last week.  The morning was grey and dreary which influenced my color choices a great deal.  The teal of the sign and trim was what grabbed my attention and made me choose this spot to sketch.  It threatened to rain but I only caught a few drops.

This part of Houston is going through a major transition.  2 brand new townhomes are next door to this building.
