I have started to like these pen and ink washes so much. After the blue gum tree class, this is another one I did inspired by another artist.
I like these dabbing of colours so much and to use my ink pen. 
All comments are welcome.

Gita,

I love your street scene.  You are so brave to put in so many people.  They look great.

I must admit, you folks inspired me to try this line and wash stuff, so am going to get the necessary supplies next week.

aloha

Great start  :clap: :clap: :clap: Just be very careful to get the perspective lines correct when drawing buildings. A few of them are out of alignment.

 :thankyou: Kathy, Mea, Mary-Lou. I am starting to love ink washes.

Dennis, I do not know how to correct this now. I shall check your video about perspectives. Have to catch up with that class.

One more street scene.. hopefully with a good perspective.
It did take some time with the scale and checking angles to get the right perspective.  :banghead: :injured:
This is done from a photo I took in St. Pierre in Martinique.
Please Dennis, can you give me your opinion to this.

 O0 That looks really good, Gita.  :clap:
 I remember when I was doing the perspective part of the "let's Draw" course. I thought I'd pull my hair out  :pullhair: I was so frustrated. With Forum member's help, I finally got the general idea. You have inspired me to work on perspective again.   It is so important to our drawings. (Maybe some ink work too  :smitten: )
