Denver Southbound1500edit

Ink over a USGS topographic map of South Denver, 18″ x 23″ approx.

Unusually this portrait combines two techniques which I tend to use individually on different types of map – the crosshatching between streets, preserving the layout of towns and cities, but also following and manipulating the weighting of contours (the organic lines which show elevation)

Original currently exhibited at the Mike Wright Gallery, which incidentally is located just off the map to the top-left.
