So this week I'll post my work from the trip. I decided to have a go at watercolours. Here is my finished painting and my steps getting there.
Step 1. Finished sketch. I did this from the window of the conference center room. Someone who worked there saw me sketching in the lobby and asked if I wanted a *really* good view. He called the front desk and asked if the room was booked and when he found out it was free he brought me up there and let me stay and paint uninterrupted. Now that's nice!
