Weekend drawing 8/20/18

I’m fascinated by the old photos of Paterson that I come across here and there. This was the Procreate version. I’m getting better at it.

This was the first attempt. Very abstract.

Sketch in gray pencil and regular graphite. I think I like this one the best.

Here’s the original photo. I’m not sure of the year but 1890’s I think.

Those long buildings are textile factories or other manufacturers.

    I love the second one down, from the colours to its slightly abstract feel, it has an almost dreamlike quality; almost like the interpretation of a hazy memory from long ago.

    You bring the scene to life. Paterson is a place I saw recently in a movie of that name about a poet… it feels like it’s the same place…steep roads going down to the water.
