San Diego Cityscape Five

10 x 14 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. I really like the colors in this piece. San Diego is bright with sunshine most of the time, so this color combination is good I think. I enjoy doing these abstract cityscapes so much - they always put a smile on my face!

I really like the way you have indicated elements of a city, but have left the interpretation to the viewer. Great colors and composition!

Thanks Theresa. It's definitely a fine line - excuse the pun! - between keeping it abstract and adding just enough suggestion.
