I really like this picture because it gave me an opportunity to have some fun. The lights are on and nobody is home, train of thought, often reminds me of many tourist. They seem to be totally out of it or unaware of our local lingo therefore this picture gets tagged or titled, Tourist.
I was blessed with a brown and gold colored ballpoint pens for this artwork because they are very difficult to find. I never realized how great or often gold or brown is used until its not available. The light house is form Santa Cruz and the buildings are based out of San Francisco while the portrait is of Picasso. I had fun playing around with angles, perspectives, colors and dimensions. Placing many colors and sharp contrast was also another focus with this picture.
Hopefully you’ll enjoy this artwork.
