Hazy skyline: Doha

A little watercolour experiment from a photo I took at the beginning of the month. It was a hazy, dusty, humid day and I did this sketch on site and everything was very flat blue. I'd wanted to try some of the things I learnt on the Ken Kempley workshop and it seemed a perfect subject matter.

Learning points: I need heavier watercolour paper to layer properly as we were shown then. Also, the foreground is too bland and doesn't draw you into the picture. Oh well, I'm happy with how productive today has been, even if not it hasn't been totally successful.
