I recently started a series of watercolor and ink paintings featuring iconic and historic music halls, clubs and venues. The first in this series had to be the Apollo Theater, in Harlem New York.
The source photo used for this painting was taken in 1971 , when Aretha Franklin was appearing, and I particularly loved that they added "she's home" to the Marquee, even though the Queen of Soul is actually from Detroit. When you're the Apollo Theater...you can do things like that.
This painting was created using India ink and watercolor and is printed with a vintage / retro style. Art Prints are printed on Museum-quality, long lasting matte (uncoated) archival paper. This poster paper is more yellowish (off white) as no optical brighteners are used during production. Paper-weight: 250 gsm / 110 lb- S hipped in sturdy protective packaging.
