A taste of Morocco...

Here is my interpretation of a recent cover of Lonely Planet magazine. Not sure if I should put in a sky?


the brickwork on the back round is not complete either is the old woman tending to the clothesline in the foreground and what about a cloudless sky? Any and all comments and suggestions welcome!
I used Stabilo pastel pencils and a few Rembrandt artist pastels and a piece of hard vine charcoal for the blacks in the picture . Done on Pentalic sketchbook paper 7"x6" Thanks for looking!

This is a nice start and I'm impressed that you were able to put this much detail in such a small format. I like the hint of sky you have started, so why not continue? Keep it light and soft.

Love the colors! And that light/lamp is incredible! I like the sky soft and white as you have it started.

I really like all the blues and that nice touch of yellow at the top.

Great job with all the architectural lines! If you do end up adding to the sky I hope you'll share the new image.

Here's the sky done but still I don't have any pastel pencils in the colors I'd need to complete the old lady messing with her clothes line? Damn...
