SUMMER SQUALL, MAIN STREET

Summer Squall on Main Street.  This is a view from the Hungerford Building in Rochester, NY looking to the west as a squall from Lake Ontario has just passed over the city.  Note that it was not done in my usual medium of watercolor; the level of detail is extraordinarily fine and can probably not be fully appreciated when looking at it here.  Charcoal and white pastel pencils on Canson Mi-Tiente paper, 19-3/4 x 9-1/2 inches approximately; double matted with a reverse cut in a pearl charcoal frame, 16-1/2 x 25 inches.
