Watercolor on paper

The Shea's Performing Art Center is located in in downtown Buffalo. I spent an afternoon walking around the theatre district looking for subject matter for my paintings. I took a number of photographs of this vantage point of Shea's but I realized that it needed something.
I took a few more pictures, trying different composistions but nothing worked. Then I spotted the metro rail in the distance and it happened to be red! I waited until it was in the perfect position and took a few pictures. The metro rail added a much needed focal point and the red created a nice contrast to the overall blue tone of the painting.
