Okay, you KNOW I am not big on self-criticizing…
But gads the green got away from me.
I think this is a good lesson in not just planning from a sketching point of view,
but from a color point of view, as this became green on green on green!
Grisaille and skies, and the yellow in the tiles…
Then as I moved into detail / color everywhere, I was
overwhelmed by green and dark and *ARGH* how to save??
I liked the tiles from Christ Church at the bottom —
and took liberties with the color as some were black and white.
I like some of the vignettes.
And hated some of the areas where the planning was
not thought out. Lettering saved it some… It looked good in B + W!
Layout is so important!

I started a Facebook group page (you must join to view) to allow everyone to share their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks together. Come join us On Facebook if you are inclined!
If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
There are a few more notes/pointers on our first walk through Laguna Beach, California.
I also created an accompanying Flickr group!
