Canton Hair Salon (2010)

drawing of Main Street in Canton, NC by Chris Lockhart with ink, gouache and brush

Across Main Street from our apartment was a tienda Mexicana that I went to frequently, and on the corner was an old clockshop where they sold and repaired clocks and watches. For a perspective assignment in Drawing II at A-B Tech, I decided to draw a series of images of this block. The perspective in this drawing emphasizes the clockshop. The paper is a cornflower paper, which has blue petals embedded.

12 in by 19½ in, ink and gouache on cornflower paper, 2010.
