There is something intensely appealing to me about abandoned buildings. Apart from the fact that I find beauty in decay there are always unanswerable questions – who lived there, what were their lives like, what inspired them to build the building and why in this particular place?
The original photo was converted to a watercolour image
the same original photo was converted to a pencil sketch
the two resulting images were then combined
and given a different colour cast
This was the original photo
this is a larger view of the same building – unifinished – I suspect it was going to be a hotel and the owners simply ran out of money to complete the project
Which one do you prefer?
