Topics: NEW JERSEY, Summit NJ, house portraits

Searching through computer files the other day, I came across images of watercolors I'd painted a while ago for the Summit, New Jersey centennial. Because the subjects were historical buildings, I wondered what they'd look like as black and white images.

Being more "computer literate" than I was five years ago when I purchased my first computer (some people take longer than others to embrace change!) I transformed the color image into black and white. I like the look, perhaps because black and white has always signified a timeless quality for me, and I think the image now says "historical".

This exercise could also be a way to check values during the painting process.
