Here are some images from a recent photo shoot of artist and friend, Doug Shoemaker, in his awesome studio in San Francisco. He does these amazing paintings of architectural details, usually set in desert landscapes like Palm Springs, and they are done in watercolor! It's such an interesting and overlooked medium. His ability to render detail and capture light and shadow is quite impressive. They are hyper-realistic on the one hand while also becoming abstractions the more you look at them. He's currently represented by SFMOMA's rental gallery down at Ft. Mason. Check out his work here.
