Somerville 1984

I did this piece 24 years ago, when I still lived in Cambridge, Mass. I used to wander around my neighborhood with my sketchbook and some watercolor pencils. I would draw a scene, almost always architecture, indicate the colors lightly with the pencils, then bring it home and following my color notes, I would paint it with watercolor. This place is actually in Somerville, which borders on Cambridge. These drawings are in a bound notebook and the paper warped when I used watercolor. I have lots of them in my archives.
