St. Charles - Main & First Capitol

St. Charles - Main & First Capitol
(c)2015 Steve Penberthy
Watercolor on Strathmore Gemini 140-lb paper in handmade sketchbook, 
6.75" x 10.25" (17 x 26 cm)

I sketched this on location while sitting in direct sun on a hot, humid day.  I'm starting to realize how much Urban Sketching can be an endurance sport!  I liked the angle from which I sketched this scene, but next time I'll scope out a shadier spot...!

Morning at the lake is super amazing one can have, this is really a super idea to implement and the painting is really beautiful. I loved your work and dedication.
