Whew, this took a lot longer to ink in than I expected. The earlier simplified architecturals only took a couple of hours, but this was more than one of the others totally finished. I haven’t decided how abstract to go with this. At 16″ x 12″ I am afraid if I get too far out on the colors, the buildings will get lost. But I don’t want it to be overly literal either. The simplified lines might work against it. I think I will just start laying the watercolor down and see where it takes me.
I will start the watercoloring after just a little bit more inking. Here and there I left out a few detail lines that have become apparent after I let it sit for a day.
