Plein-air pen and wash on paper

View from City Hall


Finally had time and occasion to complete a panoramic view from the City Hall overlooking part of downtown Nanaimo.

This was started with a pen drawing on a Fabriano traditional white, 140lb cold pressed surface, my favorite watercolour paper. I used a photograph and sketches to apply colours on this 9″Ɨ22″ size sheet.
