Melbourne city street

I spent a long and tiring day in Adelaide yesterday, a report on my mother is in my other blog.
The foal is out with its mother and drinking well and cavorting as only foals do.
I spent a lot of time today washing and ironing and tidying the house, still not vacuumed tho', I hate vacuuming.
I wanted to do something a bit different and needed to get back to the watercolours, I can dash of a sketch very quickly but paint is a different matter. I had taken a photo of this scene while we were in Melbourne and want to practice doing street scenes a bit more. At least the perspective is sort of there.

I'm too new at sketching and watercolour to know what it is that
I am seeing, but your watercolours do
bring extra qualities to your pictures-- more atmosphere and something that speaks fully to me.
I do love them, Penny.

The colors in this are really nice. Having the figure with the red dress really completes the scene, since she is in the middle-ground and your eyes travel in a circle around that point.
