Wednesday Works - Aztec Motel Sign

Here is a recent pen and watercolor drawing I did of an Aztec Hotel sign. I enjoy doing these small scale drawings because they are quick to do and they have a nice postcard quality after the wash is done. When I want to create something but I don't have a lot of time, I'll usually do a quick couple of pencil drawings from photographs that I have. I trace them in sharpie and add a watercolor wash. These can be great mini projects to do while you are on a trip or vacation.


  1. Nice drawing. It really captures the mood of the scene.

  2. Right now, these are my favorite. I need to get you a picture of the old Airplane Motel sign in Plainview. It fits.


I always like to hear what you think.....drop me a note!
