Weekly Sketch – Alhambra Arches 4 – 25/01/2014

So far so good with posting a weekly sketch. Here is my fourth exploration in drawing for a print idea; the image of the Alhambra Palace in Granada. Other drawings can be seen here https://catamongthepigeonspress.wordpress.com/sketchbook-photos-2014/

This image is in response to Hundertwasser’s original prints, which are full of strong lines and bold colours.  I drew in black pen and then scanned the image into Photoshop; using multiple layers I added colour. This is quite a good way for me to test out colour combinations. Which colour palette do you like best?
