A Cacophony of Color

Artist: Leslie Fehling, United States
Artist Statement: When I was in Florida a few weeks ago, my friend Judy and I spent a few hours at the Village of the Arts in Bradenton. We had a great lunch and strolled through the neighborhood filled with brightly colored historic cottages. Many of them house galleries, art studios, restaurants, and specialty shops. The little cottages were so cute that I couldn’t wait to sketch them. I decided to do a two-page spread in my Stillman & Birn Zeta Series softcover sketchbook. The sketch would feature four different cottages plus the hand-painted street sign in the center.

MEDIA: Ink and watercolor
SURFACE: Zeta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Smooth Finish
