Soho Square Gardens
Originally sketched lunchtime today with a black Fountain Pentel(ref: JM20MB) onto a manilla envelope (I didn't have my usual kit with me), I wanted to muck about in Photoshop with tones a little on this one to add a bit more zing. It's easy to overdo effects with computers so I just used subtle layers of grey to pick out the Tudor-style house in the middle of the composition. Erasing a layer of grey one spot at at a time in the foreground at different sizes adds a sun-dappled feel.
