Thanks for hosting Maurine. I chose this beautiful ref because I want to get some practice with buildings and landscapes and I sure need it. The second is a crop from the same image and they are both gouache on paper 170x235mm and it took just under 2 hours for both.


Thanks for looking, all C and C welcome

You've caught the heat of the day/summer beautifully Christine - as well as the beauty of the place. I love the zoom in to the figures - it's worked really well!

Both are good, stop saying you need help on buildings, so not true!!! I really like the crop with the people. I looked at that too but I'm I
