Sketched this from the window of a coffee shop across the street. Inked it in and added inkwash sometime later, adding color gradually, starting with the blue in the far window on the second storey. That seemed too restrained, but I was determined not to over-color, so I did some of the wires next, then the walls of the shops on the left. Tried to keep the saturation and values of the colors and inkwash close enough that they looked like they were in the same light.

10 x 13 1/2 inches, inkwash, watercolor pencil and dipping pen on printed copy of pencil original done on-site, 2019. Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi color print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, in a limited run of fifty. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
