Santa Monica Cityscape

8x10 watercolor with pastel on paper. Ok, no charcoal in this one! I love these colors. I am always drawn to Prussian Blue and other "blue greens" - I am not a primary blue person, though I use Cobalt Blue on occasion. I also like to use a violet blue, which is what you'll see in the "sky" of this work .I wanted this piece to have a fun, happy feel to it. Hope you like it.
