Did this in a coffee and tea place across the street using my small sketchbook. Enlarged it a bit and added watercolor as carefully as I could so as not to distract from the building structure too much. Added two applications of medium-dark inkwash when I thought the high color saturation gave it an airless feel. Much prefer it this way.

6 7/8 x 10 inches, inkwash and watercolor pencil on printed copy of fountain pen original done on-site, 2019. Print is a matted, mounted, signed 600 dpi color print on white acid-free cardstock, with half-inch borders. Part of a limited print run of fifty. I only use lightfast, pigment-based HP ink, which meets the ISO 11798 standard.
