Citrus County Courthouse 1900

2006 Colored Pencil Drawing 18 x 24 inches
Citrus County Courthouse is an original 18x24, colored pencil drawing by Citrus County Florida artist Michael Arnold. "The drawing is from a photograph of the old wooden courthouse in Inverness around 1900. The courthouse was replaced by a stone structure in 1912, and was where Elvis Presley filmed the climatic court scene in Follow That Dream in 1961. I enjoyed incorporating negative space into the artwork by working on black paper and using white, gray, blue and yellow colored pencils. This unique style adds age to the courthouse, while displaying it as you would find it back in 1900. " This is artwork is created on black art paper and drawn with high quality color pencils. Citrus County Courthouse 1900 is an one of a kind piece that combines both history and art.
