Centennial Mills Water Tower


5″ x 8″ ink and watercolor

Inspired by the Urban Sketchers.

This is an old Landmark on Portland’s waterfront. It’s scheduled for redevelopment and, although I’ve been told that the developers are committed to preserving it’s character,  I’m afraid of what it might become. I really love it in it’s decrepitness (is that a word?)

The covered area in the right foreground is used by the horses of the Portland Mounted police.

  1. Thanks PainterWoman. Although I didn’t paint this on clay board (It’s done in my sketchbook) I did use some white paint that makes some of the colors opaque, so technically it is in ink, watercolor and goauche. I also used both black and white ink.
