Apologies for being late to the party, Connie, thanks for hosting and the lovely photos. Nice gardening weather is stealing my art time.
I had forgotten how long it takes to do pencil colours, and my original attempt on 9"x12" page was unbelievably slow - I abandoned it when after 45 mins it looked like just a few fly specks on a vast white field.
I restarted in a much smaller field - 3.5x5" (9x13 cm). First, tiny brown ink lines on trees, poles, and edge of wharf, then Prismacolour Pencils on sketchbook that perhaps has too much texture., 1 hr 10 mins.

I loved this ref photo but it scared me off! You have made it yours. I really like those trees out in the left field. Great sense of distance too

Well done! And good idea for the WDE to change sizes partway through the 2 hours. But if it's a ref that makes you happy then I say go for it and never mind the progress made in 45 min or two hours.

I don't know anything about coloured pencils but I hear that smooth paper makes for happier art-making?

So lovely! It is a great composition with wise color choices.

Really nice. I like it a lot. I'm much too impatient to do cp's. Takes me way too long.

I agree about CPs taking so long, do love this tiny piece
