Old Shop Façade

Artist: Reham Moniem, Egypt
Artist statement: Sketching architecture, especially old buildings, interests me and as an interior designer my architectural background helped me. That’s why every sketchbook I have is filed with lots and lots of old building sketches. This one is not a particular shop I saw and then sketched; rather, it’s a combination of several I have seen. I then visualized this one and in drawing it on paper I tried to add more vibrant color than the usual earthy colors we usually see in old buildings.

MEDIA: Ink and watercolor
SURFACE: Beta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Cold Press
