Line Drawings of Historic Jacksonville Florida Doors

MOMA DoorIn 2011 I was inspired to draw a series of local historic doors.  This included fire stations, homes and buildings in downtown Jacksonville.  These are two door images from the urban park area Hemming Plaza in downtown Jacksonville.  The first door was originally the Western Union building, note the WU above the door and today it is the entrance to the Museum of Contemporary Art. 

The second image is a side door from the St. James building that was designed by a well know architect, Henry John Klutho. He came to Jacksonville in 1901 to help rebuild the city that had been leveled by fireRead more about his legacy at The Jacksonville Historical Society website.  Check out the photograph below of one of the medallion on this building.

    I LOVE these renderings! The hatching details just help it pop so much. Architectural details on historical buildings are unparalleled, and I think that’s why my eyes are drawn to them the most.

    I painted the gazebo in San Marco: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=459577265236&set=a.443679775236.375951.763850236&type=3&theater

    This is a beautiful image, very detailed which is one of the things I loved most about history I. Everyone put so much time and energy into their work. I don’t think to many designers us as many details as a lot of the historic designer. After seeing this image I will dignity take a visit to see the Museum of Contemporary Art.
    Really enjoyed this drawing-Sabrina Hayes

    This post is the epitome of how line adds so much texture, depth, and visual appeal to drawings. These drawings would be nothing without all the varations of line throughout. In the first drawing i love the depth created by the hatch work in the doors. Wonderful!
