“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

New York City – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor & Black Staedtler Pigment Liner
That was fun! I wish you could see it in real life. All the windows in my building paintings are done with iridescent paint, so they kinda sparkle like real windows. The reference photo was provided by MissMouse at WetCanvas.
The large building in the center took me a full hour to paint. You really can’t see it here, but the pink tiered building on the right even says New Yorker on top. It’s teenie-tiny!
