Backing away from the daily sketching of 2015, to observe more slowly and acutely.

    Great viewpoint. I can feel the water surrounding.

    I love all of your blues and greens. They look very realistic! And I like the buildings too, I think you included just the right amount of detail. Getting the essence down, I bet the whole image was quite a lot to pare down!

      It was–thanks for noticing. And those building never appear together. After our boat ride I had to take some liberties with the quick sketch I did on the boat.

      That’s kind of you to say. I see all the shortcuts and problems. I really like that mountain you showed. I hope to make an image like that one fine day.
