People's Petroleum Building, Texas Artist John York, Watercolor 12 x 18 inches
This historic Tyler landmark began as "The People's Bank" and it now enjoys a new life as "People's Petroleum Building". I've seen the building all of my life and each time I paint it I find something new. This painting was done on the spot using chopsticks to sketch then using a broad brush to color. Painting like this gives a lively look to this beautiful Art Deco structure!
