My first picture post.
The Entrance to our City Hall building.
Fine & micro Uni-ball pens, ink wash and watercolor on 10x7 hot press.

Great drawing. I really like the muted colours and limited pallet.

Thanks, Doug & Tom.
It seems kind of dead to me. I really wanted to put a few colorful figures in it to give it some life but was hesitant because of my poor skills with drawing people. Maybe next time...

Welcome to the forum!
There is a lot of very nice drawing in this - I like to see line retaining the character of the artist instead of bring ruler-straight always! I also like the way you've done the lower windows.
I hope you will join us often.:)

I like this drawing a lot, the bricks are very effective, particularly with the wash.
