Well here it is as promised, Dubai in colour. Initially I'd scanned the line drawing in and tried to colour it in digitally, but I got quite bored and wasn't enjoying the process at all. I think it may be because there are so many elements to this picture. Half way through I gave up and opted to try watercolours - something I haven't really done and have very little confidence in, but I thought, "gotta start sometime!". And so I did... I didn't want to spoil the original drawing (and it was on too thin a paper), so I printed out the scanned line drawing on to watercolour paper.
There are lots of things I'm not happy with, but for a first attempt, its passable. At least I've got into using watercolours and I can explore more. If only someone would have told me earlier that the printer ink is NOT waterproof!
