Tarrant County Courthouse in Black Prismacolor
Black Primacolor pencil on paper
16 x 20
The Renaissance Revival Tarrant County Courthouse in Dallas, Texas has a lot of nooks and crannies and the illustration took a long time to render as a consequence. The only unfortunate aspect of drawing this building without color is that it wasn't possible to capture the lovely pink hue of the Texas granite.
I like to work in black pencil and Prismacolor gives an ultra black that's matte and isn't oily and slimy like graphite. I also like the fact that it's relatively clean and doesn't come off on your hands.
