Here's the next in the Year of Painting challenge on the Painting Friends forum.
This was from a lovely but busy reference photo from mr sandbanx on Wet Canvas.
My aim with this YOP ref was to try to imagine I was on holiday (if only!) and that I was in situ with pen and watercolours, sketching the scene. I have seen a lot of beautiful journal-type art along these lines, and I am always impressed - there's a real sense of being there, a unique capture of a moment, or an afternoon perhaps. So for this YOP I sketched in ink (no pre-drawing with pencil) and tried to capture the scene as if I was actually there...
...I think I need a holiday!
