Coit tower

This is one of my latest watercolors,It's the iconic "Coit tower" in SF.
I wanted to add simplicity to it and that's why I decided not to add any blue in the background and I also left out branches and or trees on both sides of the building.
I'm always looking for shapes and or lines and color in my subjects and what got my attention on this piece was the shapes at the bottom of the tower.  
I just liked the Architectural design of it and the contrast of light and dark of the walls.
I really didn't pay much attention to measurements ,that's probably noticiable...but;oh well!
it is a watercolor painted on arches  (cold pressed) and it measures   9"x12".
it was finished on July the 23rd '15
