Sketch #16 - Somewhere beachy

This is another of those sketches of a place that doesn't exist. I made it up just doodling and using the bendy building idea.  I liked it until I started using watercolour pencils to 'colour it in' and now I actually don't like it very much at all. I wanted to make it all shades of blue like the terracotta tones in a patchwork orange but realised if I did that it wouldn't be possible to tell the sea from the sand.  Big mistake - should've just stuck to my original plan and done it all in blue and also should've used watercolour paints and not pencils.  Still it's all a learning curve.  It's in my sketchbook as part of the project and so it will stay there and serve as a reminder of how I don't want my pictures to look in the future.
