During the 2020 pandemic lock-down I started spending more and more time transitioning from painting with acrylics, to working with watercolor and pen and ink. I attended an online webinar from the amazing British artist Ian Fennely and the subjects used for each exercise were various locations along Route 66.
Route 66 is filled with amazing Americana and a deep, rich history and there are so many cool buildings and locations that you won't see anywhere else. I've done quite a few Route 66 paintings / sketches so far and have many more on my list.
This painting features The Copper Cart in Seligman Arizona. The Copper Cart was originally a restaurant that opened in 1952 and was a staple on Route 66 for sixty years. After closing in 2012, the building was vacant until it was purchased in 2015 and turned into a Motoporium Gift Shop. They kept the original sign out front and they're also known for the van with eyes that is covered with stickers from front to back.
