Green Fields and Canals
Coloured pencil over a watercolour base. This is a small drawing that I have been working on from a photograph I took in the UK ....we don't have green like that or canal boats in Sicily!
I like how the background turned out, but I really don't like the front of the narrow boat at all. The problem is the watercolour paper I used started to disintegrate when I tried to erase, so it will have to stay like that now.
