I like them both very much! They have the feeling of having been done from life rather than from photos. Not easy to do! :clap:

Astur, these are both wonderful! You are really finding your style, and subject matter, aren't you?

i like this painting, maybe the shadows are a little confusing, but the ambiance is very interesting

Hector,

I love both of them! You should work on two at a time more often!
I have a question, though. Do you do your preliminary sketch with ink? I like the look of it, however you do it.

Thanks for sharing them with us.

Hi:

One more time thanks for your comments

Kate, I did a pencil sketch (using a grid in this case, I didn't want more "falling" buldings...:) ), and then did a quick drawing with pen&ink. I used permanent ink, then I can paint with watercolor without "ruining" the lines...

See you
