Hi all

This is the big tower in the main square of Cracow, I have drawn during last week-end while sitting in a bar just in front of it.

It's a postcard-size.

Question: shall I add watercolors, or shall I leave as it is?

Any other C&C?

Thanks
Fab

What a wonderful drawing!!! such expressive linework!
I would ...print the drawing onto watercolor paper :evil: and then paint it....and you'd have both :D...

Nice job, Fab, I think colour will add to the sketch.

Incidentally have you seen/read the books by Paul Hogarth, a British artist who used to travel and sketch? I have several, and "Graham Green Country" is my favourite a good read and wonderful sketches. Search Amazon for "Paul Hogarth" for several hits.

Hey, Fab...
When I saw the title of your piece, I first thought you had your fingers on the wrong keys....then read you were drawing this from the bar...cheers, great sketch you have here. ;)

Fab, it is such a joy to view your sketches/drawings/paintings of the different places you visit on your travels!

This is one of my favorites. :cool:

Doug, thanks
I will try to buy one of the books you mentioned. It is always inspiring to see how others have interpreted the same theme you are living with (painting while travelling)...

Olika, Jolly, Cheryl, thanks

Lyn, you are always so kind with me! thanks!
