Backstreet In Barcelona by Pete-Tomblin Backstreet In Barcelona by Pete-Tomblin
Here's a watercolour I did some years ago from a photograph taken on holiday in Barcelona.
I left the figures in it fairly loose as they are incidental to ( but necessary nonetheless) to the more detailed main focal point of the architecture.

Thx for all the faves btw :)

Well when you slap on certain colours like raw umber or french ultramarine onto rough paper the granules of pigment tend to settle in the pits on the paper.

I also have to agree with the accomplished architectural detail, also the texture variation reads really well.
