Sketching buildings in watercolor

Sketching buildings has never been my best skill. I never took classes on drawing and perspective always seemed so complicated to me. But that doesn’t mean I cannot sketch just for the sick of it in my art journal: it doesn’t have to be perfect and it isn’t. Schitarea cladirilor nu a fost niciodata unul dintre talentele mele.
