Street With A View- The final and two previous versions showing the evolution of the piece

I did three versions of this view.  The first one (bottom) was a sketch from memory.  I noticed the gorgeous view as we passed by on Bus 30 on the way up the hill.  I did the second from a photo in pen and ink, and the third on site in watercolor.  I think you will find it interesting to see the three together.  From memory- I think I did it rather accurately considering I had about 30 seconds.  The first two will be up on my website shortly  http://garyartista.wix.com/gary-kirkpatrick-art

  1. I really like the first one. The blue and white awnings are great and you’ve conveyed the feeling of looking down from a high place very well.

    I would only quarrel a little with the line of the sea. It doesn’t look flat. Maybe shading parts of the water and the island would help.

    • Glad you like it! I think you are referring to the horizon line as represented by the sea. I painted it with some inlets on the far side so it would not be just a straight horizon line. I think it makes it more interesting that way.
