 :thankyou: very much, Val! The best compliment I can get in urban sketching, I suppose. You recognised the place from the drawing! Linley is right!
I am fond of harbour scenes. They create a feeling of wistfulness in me.

When I think of all the harbours I have visited it awakens the wanderlust in me. Seeing your painting brought back so many memories of the place, the people, the sights, smells, and tastes. The bittersweet sorrow of departing, but oh.... the joyous expectation of the next adventure, the next harbour. What vistas await? I must keep on... perhaps there is someone looking out to sea, someone waiting, just to meet me.   :boat:
Cheers, Val

 :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: GITA, you've done very well with pen and ink with water color washes!  You seem to have the patience for the fine detail.  I'm learning about how to do water reflections and the Craftsy instructor is pretty good. ~Liz

Thank you Val, Liz, Patricia, Aniz.
I am trying to improve my techniques in urban sketching. There are different types of approaches from what I am learning in Craftsy. In this approach I drew contours of the Berliner Dom without lifting up the pen from the paper. After that, I applied an undertone in grisaille technique and lastly added some colour on top.
The whole process takes around 30 min- 45 min.
I am starting to like this a lot and hope to do more of this during my travels.
Any comments or suggestions to this?

While waiting for my next flight, tried to sketch this lazy atmosphere at the airport lounge.
