Royal Roads University

Another abstract gone wrong

Watercolour, crayon and ink

This was supposed to be an abstract version of a sketch I posted about a year ago, but somehow it went the way of most of my abstracts, with one little Edwardian detail leading to another and another, even unto the lagoon and the Japanese Garden. My husband graduated from Royal Roads 50 years ago when it was a Military College, and says he does not recall it being so Disneyesque.

I plan to paint a few more local landmarks, and then seriously abstract all of them at once. We’ll see how it goes…
