How did you make this work:
Personal project: I came across this scene in lower Manhattan that was stereotypically New York --a street under construction, very old buildings with a very old deli, graffitied walls, indifferent people, and a cat in the window. It was a very bright day and the smoke was so dense and white, making the whole scene beautiful. Mixed media on paper.
