More Cityscapes

Here are two new Cityscapes, also measuring 12" square. They are titled Brooklyn Cityscape #3 and #4, and they are made from hand-dyed cotton. Like #1 and #2, the image is derived from a detail of a photo of a Brooklyn warehouse.

The colour scheme is essentially complementary, with violet, yellow, and the neutrals created by mixing violet and yellow.

I like to offset the line drawing from the coloured shapes, because I think it adds interest, and suggests "the hand of the maker".
