Lucky you drawing and painting this from life. Did you have a crowd of curious Turks watching you while you were doing it?
Lovely forms, beautifully drawn, and softly tinted with your watercolors. So much better than a photo or post card. :thumbsup:

This is too good!

Thanks all - no curious Turks, Sylvia, as I did it from the safety of the balcony on the boat! Istanbul is an incredible city, with considerable artistic leanings (I saw a Winsor & Newton art shop in the City Centre).
