Sketch for larger work...


I do many sketchy paintings, with the intention of working over them in acrylic or oils, 
or repainting the whole scene.
I will definitely re-do this sketch...

Berlin Shadows


A watercolour sketch of the Nikolai square near my hotel in Berlin.

The Arps&Co Gallery in Amsterdam
