Waiting for the Bus

This month's virtual paintout is in beautiful Gothenburg, Sweden. There are so many interesting scenes there to paint but I decided to just launch in and sketch the first thing I found. It must have been cold there at the water's edge as everyone on the street was bundled up. This lady looked to me as if she has finished her shopping and is waiting for transportation back to the warmth of her home. I drew with the bamboo stick dipped in Chinese ink again and then painted with my new 12-tube introductory set of QoR paints. They didn't seem as intense as they were with my last sketch using them, but that is probably because I was using Hahnemuhle paper and it seems to let the colors sink in a bit.
