Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Used my 9x12 sketchpad, no 2 and B pencils. This one is not from a photo. I can see some of this view from a window, but some of it is what I imagine a bird would see if it were flying very high.

Hello joygilcrease, Well done! A wonderful merge of direct observation and imagination. One aim of this exercise is precisely that principle: To understand that the many of the most successful artworks are comprised of a varying balance between direct observation and the mind's eye.

I love what the imagination conjures up to enhance the viewpoint.
