Thank you so much Dominique, Liz and Lauren! I was happy with the results but I really want to try this painting again in watercolor and see what it looks like to lose some edges with the sides of the buildings and just play with it.

Thanks GrayC and Judy! I had fun playing the bright reds against the complimentary grey purple of the sky : )

I used to live there and saw this view every day I drove to work. I miss the wide Assembly St. and all the University buildings. It really is a beautiful little city and you did a great job painting it.

What a beautiful creation. This is where I want to be right now. The colors are so comforting, and even through I've never been there before, there's a sense of familiarity. Love it.
