Today's sketch / O esboço do dia - 166


I think I'll spoil everything if I say that the landscape that inspired this sketch was seen from a motorway bridge...
Acho que vou estragar tudo se disser que a paisagem que inspirou este esboço foi avistada de um viaduto da auto-estrada...

Ah, nothing spoiled here Paulo - inspiration strikes at the most unexpected times and places!
Love the shadows from the trees - this will be full of light and contrast!

Working on it now, Christy. It's a sort of new experience, and so far I'm happy with it, light and contrast included :))

I just found your blog........ lovely sketches and I like how you transform them into watercolors. Your work is very attractive. Your country side pieces are beautiful, actually all of it.
