The Waterport Trestle Mural

I was asked by a collector of my work to do a mural of the Waterport Trestle for a private space. The blank wall was 28′ long and the subject was to be the re-creation of an old pen and ink drawing that I had painted over many years ago. The Trestle itself has been gone for decades. I rather enjoyed this project as it was so clear as to what the client wanted and I was enlarging my own art work.  In order to replicate the work I decided to create it the same way I did the smaller original…pen and ink that was painted over in color. I used around 100 sharpies to draw the image and then I painted over the ink with acrylic paint.  It was fun working on such a large scale project.20181125_192758 copy 220181012_17230220181019_17201320181028_20032320181029_14313220181120_22183020181111_11575520181120_221228
