Virtual Paintout - Cape Town, South Africa

My Virtual Paintout submission for this month's location, Cape Town, South Africa.
I took the approach that I was standing in the street at the corner of Fox and Hartbees, quickly sketching this person's laundry. The sketch was quickly done using a Sharpie pen, loose watercolor wash was laid down over the top and some clarifying pen was added over the top to add depth and to the sketch. The page spread is in my sketchbook (Strathmore mixed media journal with pre-painted pages (greenish blue big brush marks at the right and bottom).


  1. Awesome job on this, especially the laundry line shadows!

  2. This is great! You captured it perfectly - I feel as if I was there with you! You are very talented, thanks for sharing.
