Frankfort Avenue color compromise

This is the painted version of what “was” a successful black and white. Again, I am happy that I took a photo before, and now after.

I am disappointed for a number of reasons. The sharp lines have disappeared and the puzzle-like quality of wires, poles and buildings have flattened out.

On my satisfaction scale, I give it a 4.25. The success of the image may not be up to my standards but rather, what I learned. Clearly, learning is always a 10.

I have degrees in art and was an art director for 30 years.


  1. I like it too, Barry ! I see that the concentration in the middle is spread over the page by the brown colour. Except for this, I find that the qualities of the black and white drawing remain. This being said, as I am a black and white man, I still prefer the black and white drawing.
