Well kudos to you Guilli - this is going to be grand, I hope you finish. I too thought I might give this one a go and did a small sketch to see if I could make a go of it, but It remains a very small sketch not going anywhere at the moment.

Will be very nice when finished :thumbsup:

Great start Guilli, I like it already.

Hello Guilli! I am 100% sure that this will be outstanding once finished. I'm also daunted by archetectural subjects but you have the flair for it. Will come back to check every now and then. Thanks for joining in!

Guilli.....please finish...it is looking good. Sometimes being out of your comfort zone is a very good thing.

Great start, Guilli!
Buildings are out of my comfort zone, too; yours are nice and straight, though.

I. too, avoid painting buildings like the plague! :lol:

Your piece is off to a flying start!

Good start! I too don't like to paint buildings :)

Hey Kate,DWhite,Christine,Joel,Kay Athena,flug,Barbara,Mike,Wendy,Deano,Connie,Maureen,glad i am not alone with negative thoughts about buildings:eek: lucky these were practically head on with no acute perspective,some progress,my fav bit so far is the cafes and people running through the middle,would love to be able to zoom in close for a painting,oh well the boats next.

This is coming on nicely, looking forward to seeing the finish. I'm with you on painting buildings, don't think I want to paint another building for a long time.

Very good so far Guilli

Great progress, Guilli! Beautiful muted colors that gives the work a lot of character. Pls notify me when you finish it. Thanks!

Oh Lovely Guilli - I am a bit like yourself wherein I would like to peer into the cafe for people's faces and their expressions - I guess that's the illustrator in us eh Guilli!
