IF: Winter

Zdepski's watercolor and digital illustration of Skate Pups in Manhattan
Skate Pups in Manhattan, a slight return.

This was originally a watercolor from 2008 that had stalled out. I revisited it with some help from my Cintiq. It pops a bit more, since I took control of many of the details that were being over run by the wet on wet issues with the watercolor.

I loved this scene while in NYC - a skating rink surrounded by high-rise buildings... mere blocks from Time Square. I may still be working on this piece this weekend, so don't think that you're looking at the final version... things can change.

Happy Holidays, all!

Always wanted to visit New York ( I was there when I was a kid but can;t remember much) would love to try skating over there. Great illustration by the way :)
