Alley Paintings

I took some photos in the new alley behind my new apartment. I was intrigued by the additions and subtractions made to the bricks. I could literally see back through time, and through the many layers of paint, and I likened it to the way I approach a painting on paper. With watercolors, a joy, or a curse of the medium is that one can see all the layers that were made before, because they are so translucent. It's more about how things fit in the end, the colors, patterns and shapes, rather than a single layer that was made on top...
