On the Danube~ from my sketchbook ~ Budapest

from my sketchbook ~budapest sites
"Budapest Sites" from my sketchbook ~ by Jane LaFazio
In my Sketching and Watercolor classes, I teach my students how to capture what they see, quickly, in their sketchbooks. Below is my page in progress. I drew most of the images while on a short site-seeing cruise on the Danube. As you can see, I made plenty of notes so I could finish my page later that day.

(The color swatches, above, are the colors of the buildings in Budapest.)

Below is the page I did during my demo. (Well, I did the cappuccino later that day.) Can you recognize the green dome in both my sketchbook pages.
