Hong Kong

WC and gouache, 18x12 cm
This is not mine, done by my illustrator friend at the office.
The original image is from a postcard. I liked the bright colors of the busy street and beautiful chinese calligraphy. So I did the pencil work and the first wash. But then realized that it was too dark for the first layer and got frustrated a little bit. So my friend has completed it for me to show me that i mustn't give up on any painting...

Don't give up, EVER. The greatest amount of work was in the drawing and you did a wonderful job.
Watercolor is a great medium for making corrections and changes and there's always gouache. Give it another try!
